Chelsea receive transfer update on £20m Italy winger

Chelsea target Antonio Candreva has made a decision about his future, according to his agent

Chelsea have been handed a transfer boost after Antonio Candreva’s agent confirmed that the winger has made a decision on his future.

The Italy international has been heavily linked with a summer move after an eye-catching European championship for the Chelsea target so far.

The Lazio winger, who was also a star of Italy’s 2014 World Cup campaign, scored 10 times in 29 Serie A appearances for the Rome outfit last term.

Italy head coach Antonio Conte is thought to be keen to sign the Lazio winger as the new Chelsea manager looks to bolster his squad ahead of the new season.

And Candreva’s agent Federico Pastorello has revealed that his client knows where he wants to move to in the summer transfer window amid talks of a Blues transfer.

“The president of the Lazio knows what he wants for the boy. Lotito will decide the price, but the will of Candreva is clear,” Pastorello told Sky Sports Italia.

“In the coming days we will see if there are developments.”

Candreva has scored 45 times in 191 games in all competitions for Lazio.
