Chelsea news: Antonio Conte may sign Torino hitman Andrea Belotti on one condition | Football | Sport


Chelsea could sign a striker when the transfer window reopens next month with the Blues currently short of options up front.

Alvaro Morata is currently sidelined through injury and, despite impressing since his move from Real Madrid back in the summer, Chelsea feel more is required.

Michy Batshuayi is yet to earn the trust of Conte, while Diego Costa is no more after being sold to Atletico Madrid back in the summer.

And the Daily Mail say Chelsea could opt to sign Belotti if Torino lower their asking price.

The Serie A giants quoted potential suitors a massive £100million to sign the Italy international back in the summer.

Manchester United were, at one point, interested.

But Jose Mourinho instead opted to shell out £75m on the Premier League proven, albeit currently frustrating Romelu Lukaku.

Chelsea themselves were eyeing Belotti prior to the Morata deal.

And Conte is still keen on his compatriot as he aims to guide the Blues to a top four finish this season.

The Daily Mail say, however, he is not the only striker on their radar.

Borussia Dortmund’s Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Celtic’s Moussa Dembele are both being considered.

And Chelsea could even make a stunning swoop for Daniel Sturbridge, who left to join Liverpool in January 2013.

Sturridge’s time at Anfield appears to be drawing to a close with the 2018 World Cup on the horizon.

Yet whether Jurgen Klopp lets the England international join a direct rival remains to be seen.
