Italian media outlet Tutto Mercato Web claim Antonio Conte is keen on the 27-year-old, who is rated at £55million, as he looks to further improve on his Premier League winning squad.
I was a PE teacher in Essex when I was approached by Ted Davies, the chief scout at Chelsea, to monitor the south-east.
"He's strong. In the moment I called on him to play, he showed this".
Like their rivals, Chelsea are expected to spend this summer.
"When you arrive at this point of your career it's very important to feel yourself, to feel your body, to feel your mind, to feel if you have still desire, still will to fight to arrive every day and work very hard".

"Five years ago I wasn't even professional so to receive this kind of award means I am the kind of player I can not even imagine being here". "This is the first important thing for me", Conte said. This team is really poor and a big defeat seems like how they will exit the Premier League and to be honest it is probably a fitting end to their season.
"We want to win 30 games and help Thibaut (Courtois) win the Golden Gloves then prepare in the right way for the final of the FA Cup against Arsenal".
Conte's team have swept all before them this term but Neville believes he has a number of issues he must address if they're to continue their success next season.
Speaking to the London Evening Standard, Conte said: "Gary is our vice-captain this season".
Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is the favourite for the players' prize, having already been named the PFA (Professional Footballers' Association) Player of the Year and the FWA (Football Writers Association) Player of the Year. The Black Cats have been in the bottom three from the very start to the season and nobody was surprised to see them go down.
