Antonio Conte To Be Influential At Chelsea

share on:

Italian football expert Valentina Vass had this to say about Antonio Conte, who will be joining Chelsea once he finishes his work with Italy at Euro 2016.

Vass who was Speaking to Sky Sports News HQ in a Transfer Special show said

“He (Antonio Conte) has very clear ideas of what he wants. That’s both when he’s playing a game and choosing the players.

“That’s probably one of the reasons why he left Juventus at the time because he had a clear idea in his mind and he wanted the club to follow it.

“He’s going to be very influential in the transfer market because he’s going to try and take a lot of players from Italy with him to the Premier League.

“There’s Juan Cuadrado who is on loan at Juventus now, he is going to go back to Chelsea at the end of the season and is one of the players Conte wanted at Juventus when he was in charge there.


“There are also players he wants to keep. Oscar was a target for Juventus but Conte wants to keep him at Stamford Bridge. There’s another player on loan at Napoli, Nathaniel Chalobah. It looks like he will be going back to London to be part of the team.

“Roma are feeling the pressure a lot on Radja Nainggolan. He was the first player we knew Conte wanted, but it looks like the player wants to stay at Roma even thought the offer is very high.

“There’s €36m on the table and €6 for the player himself. There are others like Miralem Pjanic, who Juve are also interested in. It looks like Chelsea and Juventus will have a kind of derby in the transfer market.”
