Chelsea transfer report: Napoli table £18m bid for Blues target Antonio Candreva

29 Jun

Napoli have made an £18m bid for Chelsea target Antonio Candreva.

The winger is hoping to leave Lazio this summer as he wants to play in the Champions League next season.

Incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte wants the Italian to join him at Stamford Bridge and believes he can lure him to England even without the pull of European football.

However, according to Corriere dello Sport, the Blues need to act fast as Napoli have now made an £18m bid for Candreva.

The Serie A side are hopeful that they can pip Chelsea to the 29-year-old by offering him the chance to play Champions League football – but remain in Italy.

Candreva has spent his whole career in Italy and it is uncertain whether he would want to move abroad now, even if it was to work under Conte.

However, even Napoli could be frustrated in their pursuit, with Lazio recently reiterating that the player is not for sale this summer.
