Chelsea have reportedly sent in a lucrative offer to Milan and Napoli target Antonio Conte to try and convince him to replace Mauricio Pochettino.

The Blues find themselves in a difficult spot as the Premier League season starts to draw to a close, sitting ninth in the table with five games left to play, leaving them far off the Champions League spots.

Reports on Wednesday suggested that Chelsea had started targeting Thiago Motta ahead of the summer, keen to bring the high-flying Bologna coach to West London ahead of next season, keen to replace Pochettino after a painful campaign.

Chelsea offer to Conte

La Repubblica details how Chelsea are seriously interested in bringing Conte back to West London for a second spell and have been in close contact in recent days, proposing a lucrative offer to try and convince him of the move.

Milan and Napoli are both targeting the Italian tactician as well, but the former’s focus on a younger sustainable project seems unlikely to tempt the coach and the latter have been waiting for a breakthrough for months.
