Chelsea are strongly linked with a move for Wolfsburg’s full-back Ricardo Rodriguez, according to reports from Bild.
The report claims that Conte sees the full-back position as a weak one and after letting Branislav Ivanovic leave, Conte is weighing up a move for Rodriguez.
Premier League club are expected to enter the negotiation with Wolfsburg this week and agree a transfer fee for the summer deal.
Rodriguez was previously linked with a move to Arsenal but the move could never take place as Gunners were not ready to meet player’s asking fee.
Face of Football’s take
Unlike the report suggests, there could not be a swift end to this transfer saga and Chelsea fans can be sure of being dragged into the very last moment by Wolfsburg to let Rodriguez join Stamford Bridge next summer.
