Antonio Conte will push for a deal to sign Torino’s Andrea Belotti, if the club from Italy agree to reduce their current asking price of £100m.
The Blues have been missing the flare that they had last term, as they lifted the Premier League title and made it to the finals of the FA Cup.

The Italian boss has been trying his best to replicate the form that made his team the champions of England- but to no avail. With that said, Conte is looking for more quality options up front that can make a difference to his team’s overall performance this term.
If the Serie A giants reduce their asking price, he is willing to go in for the 23 year old Italy international, who can help him fortify the front-line.
With Alvaro Morata out injured and Michy Batshuayi not being able to gain the trust of his manager, there is a serious need to get in more reinforcements in the new year.
However, the Londoners are not willing to pay such a high fee for their target and are waiting for the price to be reduced. If that does happen, the attacker might finally be able to complete his move to Stamford Bridge, though it will take some serious convincing to get the price reduced. Manchester United were looking to add him to their squad as well, although the signing of Lukaku in the summer transfer window ended these speculations once and for all.
The west London side now seem to be the favourites to add him to their squad, if the terms can be agreed to in the upcoming days.
Well, the player does have the quality to be a star in the top flight of English football, if the deal does go through and both sides are happy. He is still quite young and can really add some quality to Chelsea’s attack and help them perform better, with crucial games coming up in the new year, which could determine how their season ends.
Hopefully, Conte and his team can get a deal done before any other team can make an offer and extend this transfer saga or the price hikes once again.
