Southampton and Italian forward, Graziano Pelle could reportedly reunite with Chelsea new boss Antonio Conte at Chelsea this summer.
The pair had worked together in the Italian national team, where Conte will leave after the Euro 2016, to take charge of his new Job at Stamford Bridge.
According to The Sun, the former Juventus manager is keen to take the Southampton center-forward with him.
It is not clear why Chelsea would want to sign Pelle if not to replace Loic Remy and Radamel Falcao as deputies to first choice striker Diego Costa.
The report added that the 30-year-old striker, who has 12 months left on his contract at the St. Mary’s Park, is worth £8 million.
Pelle is expected to leave the Saints at the end of the season, having fallen down the pecking order over recent weeks.
