Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is attempting to force a sensational double deadline day swoop for Marcelo Brozovic and Angelo Ogbonna, according to reports in Italy.

The Blues have been very quiet in the transfer window with all their title rivals spending massive amounts to get their targets. Arsenal, Liverpool, Manchester City, and Manchester United have all spent heftily to ensure they get their targets.

Meanwhile, Chelsea have only signed Michy Batshuayi from Marseille and N’Golo Kante from Leicester City earlier in the summer and have been looking to sign a central defender all through the summer.

The Blues have been linked with Napoli’s Kalidou Koulibaly and Torino’s Nikola Maksimovic but the deals are not set to happen as the clubs are keen to hold on to their players. Chelsea were also linked with their former defender David Luiz but West Ham’s Angelo Ogbonna looks a more realistic target for the Blues on the deadline day.

Ogbonna have previously worked with Conte at Juventus and could provide cover for both John Terry and Gary Cahill with Kurt Zouma still recovering from injury. The arrival of Marcos Alonso will add more depth to Chelsea’s defense but Ogbonna will add depth to the central defense which Blues are looking for.

Chelsea are also eyeing a deal for Inter Milan midfielder Marcelo Brozovic as he has attracted interest from a number of Premier League clubs which also include Arsenal and Liverpool. The addition of Brozovic would help Conte to be more direct in his play as he offers more depth in central midfield and have been an instant hit at Inter Milan last season.
