Reports: Conte Wants Italy Defender At Chelsea

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte reportedly has his eyes set on one of Italy's prized defenders, and wants to sign him before the transfer window closes.

According to Football Italia, the Blues boss has made Juventus centre back Giorgio Chiellini his top target before the end of the month.

It is believed the 32-year-old is worth about £25 million (R446 million), but it is unlikely his Serie A side would allow him to leave for that price.

The Bianconeri have said that they do not wish to sell anyone they have on their books, and with Chiellini being such a crucial part of their defence, the task of securing his signature will be a tough one for Conte.

Chelsea have also been linked with Chiellini's defensive partner Leonardo Bonucci over the past month, but the English club were told that the player is not available for sale.

Chiellini joined the Turin side back in 2005, and has made 402 appearances for the club, scoring 30 goals and assisting a further 19 strikes.

Do you think the Italian is the type of player Chelsea need right now? Have your say in the comments section below.
