Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is unconvinced with the display from his defenders this season despite the acquisition of Zappacosta during last summer’s transfer market. The Blues have been in an awful form throughout the season and they’ve failed to defend the league title which they won last season.
In his bid to make his team stronger at the back of the pitch in the upcoming season, Antonio Conte has sent some scouts to spy on Inter Milan and AC Milan’s defenders when both teams clash in the Serie A fixtures, according to report.
The much talked-about derby match which was earlier scheduled for Sunday has been rescheduled due to Davide Astori’s tragic death in the early hours of Sunday.
This means the Blues entourage will have to wait for some time before they file their reports on each player’s performance after the game.
Struggling AC Milan side might be reluctant to let go of Alessio Romagnoli who has been phenomenal for the Rossoneri despite their poor collective performance. According to reports via Diario Gol, the young Italian defender could extend his contract with the former Scudetto Champions by the end of the season.
The FC Inter News suggests that Inter Milan and Slovakian 23-year-old centre-back Skriniar is being monitored by Chelsea and the Blues scouts will keep a close watch on his performance for the Amazuris. He has scored four goals in 28 matches in all competitions since he joined the Serie A giants from Sampdoria last summer.oma
Should Conte remain as the Blues’ manager next season, both players might just be the Italian’s prime transfer target in the summer as he hope to challenge for the title.
