Chelsea could revive their interest in signing Lazio defender Stefan De Vrij in the January transfer window.
Blues boss Antonio Conte was desperate to sign a centre-half in the summer and had failed in attempts to lure De Vrij to Stamford Bridge before the start of the season.
Conte went on to land David Luiz in a £32million deal on deadline day but still wants to add another defender to his squad.
He is now eyeing a January move for De Vrij, according to Calciomercato.
Lazio are readying a new contract offer for the 24-year-old, but a fee of around £15m could be enough to tempt them into selling the Netherlands international.
