Chelsea FC transfer news: Antonio Conte eyeing experienced Serie A star Federico Marchetti

Chelsea have launched an assault for Lazio goalkeeper Federico Marchetti, according to reports in Italy.

Antonio Conte is on the lookout for a back-up option to Thibaut Courtois this summer, with current No.2 Asmir Begovic expected to leave the club in search of regular first-team football.

According to La Lazio Siamo Noi, the Italian could would be willing to part with Marchetti if Chelsea stump up a fee in the region of £6m.

Liverpool and Juventus have also been eyeing a swoop for the experienced 33-year-old but Conte is in prime position to lure him to Stamford Bridge.

Marchetti has made over 150 appearances for Lazio since he joined from Cagliari in 2011 and has also made 11 appearances for Italy.
