Chelsea‘s chances of signing Inter Milan winger Antonio Candreva have reportedly increased after the Italian club began searching for a replacement.
Blues manager Antonio Conte is looking to bolster his options on the right side of the field, in the hope of providing competition for Victor Moses.
The Serie A giants are said to be keen on landing Lazio’s Keita Balde, which would free up a possible move for £23m-rated Candreva, according to The Mirror.
Conte has had his eye on the 30-year-old for some time having attempted to bring the winger to Stamford Bridge in January, but a deal failed to materialise.
Candreva has only been at Inter for a year following his 2016 switch from Lazio.
