Chelsea Plotting £35m Move For Vitolo

Chelsea set to make summer move £35m-rated Sevilla attacker Vitolo as Antonio Conte plans to compete for all possible trophies next season, according to the Mirror.

Italian manager in his first year at Stamford Bridge has led the team to the Premier League title, but now he needs to further strengthen his squad if his side wants to compete for domestic and Champions League trophies.

While the champions have been on the verge to complete the signing of Alex Sandro and Monaco’s midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko, Conte is also seemingly in the market for a new attacker.

The Mirror claim that Antonio Conte’s side are weighing up a swoop for La Liga winger Vitolo as Conte is believed to be a huge fan of the 27-year-old’ forward who has managed to score six goals last season and added ten more assists for Sevilla.

The 27-year-old Spaniard was reportedly close to signing for Sevilla’s La Liga rivals Atletico Madrid in the recent months before their transfer ban scuppered the proposed move and the newspaper suggests that a forward who has release clause worth £35m could look elsewhere to continue his career.

The Spanish international can play on either flank so he’d provide good support for Pedro Rodriguez and Eden Hazard if He decides to sign for Stamford Bridge side.
