Chelsea are still being linked with Inter Milan winger Antonio Candreva.
The Blues were heavily linked with the winger in the summer transfer window but a move didn’t materialize.
Conte is a big fan of the right-sided midfielder’s versatility and will be keen to work with him again but Chelsea’s reluctance to sign players who are into their 30s is complicating things.
But reports in Italy haven’t stopped linking Chelsea with the midfielder. According to Calcio Mercato via the Daily Star, Candreva is now struggling at Inter which has resulted to poor performances this season. As a result, Inter could consider selling him when the transfer window reopens in January.
Chelsea have been mentioned as one of his possible destinations, perhaps because of the Blues past links with him and the fact that he shares the same agent with Antonio Conte.
Candreva stated on numerous occasions in the summer that he is happy at Inter but should the Italians decide to sell him anytime, he would have to move elsewhere because Chelsea may not be interested in signing him.
I don’t think Chelsea should sign him. He would cost us in excess of £20m and considering he is will be closing in on his thirty-first birthday, it won’t represent a good value for money.
