Chelsea will send scouts to watch Milan Skriniar and Antonio Candreva in action for Inter Milan against Atalanta on Sunday, according to reports in Italy.

Italian website Fcinternews.it is reporting that Antonio Conte is considering transfer moves for the pair as the January window edges ever nearer.

The report claims that the west London side will send scouts to watch 22-year-old defender Skriniar and 30-year-old midfielder Candreva in action in the Serie A clash this weekend.

Skriniar has scored two goals in 12 Serie A appearances for Inter so far this season.

Candreva, meanwhile, has notched up four assists in 12 games in the Italian top flight for the Milan side.

Chelsea are believed to be keen to strengthen their squad in the January transfer window after what has been a mixed start to the new campaign for Conte’s side.

The Italian manager will be keen to make sure that his side are as strong as possible heading into the second half of the campaign as they look to challenge for trophies on all fronts.

Chelsea ended up being one of the busier Premier League clubs in the summer transfer window as they made six signings ahead of Conte’s second campaign in charge at the club.
