Chelsea FC transfer report: Blues plot summer move for Roma defender Kostas Manolas

Chelsea have added Roma defender Kostas Manolas to their summer shopping list, according to reports in Italy.

Incoming boss Antonio Conte is understood to be a fan of the Greece international having monitored him closely in Serie A this year.

The Italian is planning to raid his home country when he takes over at Stamford Bridge in July, with Gonzalo Higuain, Antonio Rudiger and Radja Nainngolan all linked with switches to west London.

And according to Tuttosport, Chelsea have added Manolas to their list of targets and are ready to sound out his representatives over a deal.

Roma, however, are not overly keen to cash in on Manolas this summer as they will be forced to pay his former club Olympiakos a sizeable chunk of any fee.
