Chelsea‘s strike force as of now boots the likes of Alvaro Morata or Michy Batshuayi, but Antonio Conte is desperate to reinforce his ranks by signing a sharpshooter in January that will reignite Chelsea’s title hopes.
The authoritative Premier League champions presently sit nine points behind Pep Guardiola’s flourishing side, who have scored 38 goals in 11 games compared to Chelsea’s 20.
To monitor the EPL table-toppers, Antonio Conte is resolved to get a world-class forward to form a clinical strike partnership with Alvaro Morata, while unavoidably spelling the end for Michy Batshuayi.
After rumors developed of an approach for Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke, Italian publication ‘GOL’ revealed that Conte has decided on Mauro Icardi, and will attempt to prize the Argentine away from the San Siro in the winter transfer window.
The Inter skipper has scored 86 goals in 155 appearances for the Serie A outfit, finding the net every 97 minutes this season. Conte has told the Chelsea progressive system to meet his £88 million release clause condition to bring him to Stamford Bridge, a player that could reignite Chelsea’s title hopes.
