The Italian wants to inject some English blood into his title-winning squad this summer, according to The Daily Mail.
Chelsea are reportedly eyeing a shock summer move for Tom Davies and are set to test Everton’s resolve with a bid for the youngster
Barkley and Oxlade-Chamberlain are both expected to move this summer as they are in the last 12 months of their contracts. Conte is a well-known admirer of Kane and revealed yesterday he thought the Tottenham ace was worth over £100m and is the complete striker.
Tom Davies was heralded as the next midfield wonderkid to emerge from the Everton academy setup after his senior breakthrough at Goodison Park. While he made his Premier League debut in the 2015-16 campaign, it was the last season where he established himself as one of the brightest young players in the country.
The Liverpool-born youngster made 24 league appearances under Ronald Koeman as he became one of Koeman’s go-to people as far as options in the midfield are concerned. Mainly deployed in the central midfield, the player did his job with aplomb and put in quite an appreciable effort.
He was slowly inducted into the lineup by Koeman. But, it was his back-to-back performances against Southampton and Manchester City that saw him lock down a regular place for himself in Koeman’s first-team plans.
The youngster, who has just turned 19 in June, has emerged as a shock target for Chelsea now, with Antonio Conte continuing to seek addition of depth in his midfield options. The 19-year-old’s successful break-through season has managed to catch the attention of the Blues.
Chelsea have signed Tiemoue Bakayoko to add to their midfield options. But, Nemanja Matic is likely to leave, which will reduce Conte’s midfield choice to Kante, Fabregas and Bakayoko. And Tom Davies is being eyed as a possible addition to the squad.
Chelsea also have a problem about the amount of home-grown players at their disposal and therefore Oxlade-Chamberlain is more likely to be targeted for that position.
