Chelsea are reportedly hoping to sign Inter Milan midfielder Antonio Candreva in a £25m deal before the transfer deadline day, according to The Daily Mirror.
The Premier League champions have recently held talks with the Italian giants about the possibility of signing the 30-year-old winger.
The story adds that the Blues manager Antonio Conte is keen to push through deal as fast as possible now, with only a week left for the transfer deadline day.
And the story says that the Italy international has been told by Nerazzurri that he can leave the San Siro in a £25million deal.
The west London outfit have been linked with a number of players this summer but they have so far only secured deals for Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata.
Chelsea is now preparing for their upcoming Premier League encounter against Everton at Stamford Bridge on Sunday.
