Chelsea are all but Premier League champions and are one step away from an FA Cup final which could give manager Antonio Conte a league and cup double in his maiden season as a boss in English football.

With that in mind, some in west London are beginning to turn their thoughts to summer deals, and things are looking good for the former Juventus and Italy manager.

According to reports from the Daily Star, the Italian is keen to bolster his defence this season, and has highlighted £25m rated Jorge Mere as a target.

The bonus for Conte is that his current club, Sporting Gijon, are willing to sell and given that they could be facing the drop may even give the Blues a discount.

At just 19-years-old the centre-half already has over 50 first team appearances under his belt and, despite not yet picking up a cap, has already been called up to the Spanish national squad, having already represented them at every level from U17.
