Chelsea are keen to sign Marco Verratti and have already offered Paris Saint-Germain £55million, reports the Sun.
The major obstacle is that the midfielder has no wish to leave the French capital despite what has ultimately been a disappointing season for the club.
Monaco have been confirmed as champions and PSG’s Champions League campaign will be remembered for their history-making collapse against Barcelona.
Unai Emery is thought to be open to the idea of cashing in on Verratti, and it could now fall to Antonio Conte to convince his former Italy player to join him at Stamford Bridge.
It may prove difficult to convince the 24-year-old that he will be a key player at Chelsea as they already have numerous options in his position.
Even Cesc Fabregas has struggled for minutes on the pitch, though next term there will be an increase in opportunities because of the Blues’ participation in the Champions League.
