Chelsea are still interested in signing Antonio Candreva from Inter Milan this summer, according to reports in Italy.

Italian website Calciomercato is reporting that Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is a keen admirer of Candreva and would like to bring the 30-year-old to Stamford Bridge this summer.

However, the same story says that Chelsea have not yet made a bid for the midfielder as the Blues search for their fifth signing of the summer transfer window.

The article also says that Chelsea know that they would have to pay in the region of €25m to sign Candreva from the Italian side this summer.

Chelsea have been linked with a host of players so far this summer but have only brought in four new names so far.

The Blues have landed Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Alvaro Morata and Tiemoue Bakayoko so far this summer but it is widely expected that they will bring in a number of new players before the close of the window at the end of the month.

Chelsea are preparing for a return to the Champions League next month after their Premier League title triumph last season.
