Chelsea is ready to make a £42m (€48m) bid to sign defender Kostas Manolas from Roma.
Antonio Conte wants to sign the 26-year-old Greece international. The Italian coach believes that Manolas is the perfect player to increase Chelsea’s defensive potential.
Manolas would cover John Terry’s Stamford Bridge exit.
Although the Greek defender is under contract with Roma until June 2019, several clubs are targeting him. Arsenal is competing with the Blues for the strong Roma center-back.
