  • Chelsea submit £55m bid for PSG star as Antonio Conte demands creative midfielder

Antonio Conte has enjoyed a hugely impressive debut season as Blues boss, guiding the club to their second Premier League title in three years.

Alexis Sanchez will leave Arsenal if they fail to secure Champions League football this season.

And The Sun claim Chelsea are desperately trying to tempt Verratti, 24, to west London.

Marco Verratti will stay at Paris Saint-Germain despite interest from Chelsea, according to Marquinhos.

(APH) Price Target Increased to $80.00 by Analysts at Deutsche Bank AG
The Firm operates through two divisions, which include Interconnect Products and Assemblies, and Cable Products and Solutions. The company has a market capitalization of $22.31 billion, a price-to-earnings ratio of 25.90 and a beta of 0.86.


The Blues are said to have lodged a bid of £55m for the 21-cap Italy global.

The Italian midfielder only signed a new five-year deal in January so it's hard to see how Chelsea will be able to prise him away from the Parc des Princes any time soon.

The Sun do report, however, that PSG are open to the idea of selling Verratti, and he is still weighing up the possibility of making a stunning switch to Stamford Bridge.

Well, having also been linked with Tiemoue Bakayoko from Monaco there seems to be little doubt that Conte is keen to bring in a new central midfielder, and there are few better options in the world than Verratti to do that if the Blues want to make a statement.
