Chelsea coach Antonio Conte is lining up a move for Fiorentina winger Federico Bernardeschi, claim GazzaMercato.
However, the Blues may struggle to lure the Italy international to Stamford Bridge with La Viola believed to be desperate to keep hold of the player.
The 22-year-old has a contract in Florence until the summer of 2019.
The Italian under-21 international has been a target for Antonio Conte since he took over in West London last summer.
And he is on his wanted list for January and according to a report Bernardeschi has told Fiorentina that he wants to move to the capital.
Conte has been looking around his homeland for reinforcements for his squad with a left back, striker and central defender on his wanted list.
Bernardeschi has made 12 top-flight appearances under Paulo Sousa this season, scoring six goals and assisting two in the process.
