Chelsea FC have prioritised the signing of Daniele Rugani from Juventus to improve their defence this summer, according to a report in England.

Website Football.London is reporting that the Blues have identified Rugani as their number one choice to bolster their options at right-back in the current transfer window.

The same article states that Rugani’s potential move to Chelsea FC is contingent on Maurizio Sarri taking over the reins from Antonio Conte this summer.

According to the same story, Conte would be happy to stick with Victor Moses and Davide Zappacosta if the former Juventus boss remains in charge of the west London side.

Chelsea FC haven’t made any signings in the summer transfer window despite their disappointing defence of their Premier League title last season.

The Blues finished in fifth spot behind Liverpool FC and Tottenham Hotspur to miss out on Champions League football for the second time in three campaigns.

Chelsea FC managed to end a dismal campaign with some silverware following a 1-0 win over Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley back in May.

Belgium international Eden Hazard scored the winner from the penalty spot to ensure silverware in successive seasons under Conte.
