Inter Milan are ready to sell Antonio Candreva to Chelsea but want to keep Ivan Perisic, according to reports in Italy.

Mediaset Premium, as quoted by Football Italia, is reporting that Inter Milan are prepared to allow Candreva to move to the Premier League champions this summer.

The same article states that the Serie A giants hope to sign Lazio forward Keita Balde Diao to replace the experienced Italian playmaker ahead of the new season.

However, Inter don’t want to allow Perisic to move to Manchester United despite the Red Devils chasing the Croatia international for the past couple of months.

According to the story, Inter view Lazio winger Keita as the natural replacement for Candreva despite the 30-year-old scoring six goals and making eight assists last season.

The Italy international worked with Conte during the manager’s two-year spell in charge of the Azzurri before he took over the reins at Chelsea last summer.

The Blues have signed goalkeeper Willy Caballero, AS Roma defender Antonio Rudiger, AS Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko and Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata so far this summer.
