Chelsea boss keen to clinch deal for former club's star striker
Antonio Conte’s presence as Juventus’ beat Inter in Serie A on Sunday has sparked rumours that Chelsea are keen to lure Paolo Dybala to Stamford Bridge, per the Daily Star.
Dybala is seen as one of Europe’s most exciting prospects. The Argentine helped lead Juve to the Serie A title in his debut season last year and now looks set to repeat the trick.
Conte spent three years in charge at Juventus between 2011 and 2014 and played for the club for ten years. It was thought he just returned to his old stomping ground to support his former club.
But speculation of a move for Dybala increased when the Italian was spotted leaving the stadium when the striker was substituted with around seven minutes of the game remaining.
The Star claims the Blues, who are on track to win a second Premier League title in three years, could be in the market for a new striker after top scorer Diego Costa was subject of interest from China in January.
Conte was able to see Juan Cuadrado, the Colombian winger on loan at Juve, score the winner with a spectacular long-range effort.
