According to Daily Star, Tottenham Hotspur boss Antonio Conte is keen on signing Chelsea centre-back Andreas Christensen as a free agent at the end of the season.

Christensen’s future at Chelsea is currently up in the air with the 25 year old stalling on extending his contract which expires at the end of the season.

Christensen’s current deal is set to expire on July 1, meaning that from January he will be able to talk to other clubs about a free transfer.

The Blues are keen on keeping the academy graduate beyond this season and are hopeful of reaching an agreement with the 25 year old.

Tottenham are not alone in coveting the Danish international, though, with Manchester United, Manchester City, AC Milan and Barcelona all said to be monitoring developments.

As well as Christensen, Antonio Rudiger, Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta are all also out of contract in the summer.
