According to a report from the Mirror, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is willing to bring his former striker Mario Mandzukic from Juventus to the Stamford Bridge in order to solve his attacking concerns at Chelsea.
The Italian boss is willing to exercise patience stretching to the transfer deadline day for Mandzukic as he is well aware of the last minute craziness of transfer windows.
The West London club have been chasing striker additions after the departures of Alexandre Pato or Radamel Falcao, with the young Belgian Michy Batshuayi is the only attacking star signed during the summer transfer window.
The Blues have also been in pursuit to sign their former striker Romelu Lukaku this summer, but the manager of Everton Ronald Koeman has revealed that 23-year-old Belgian international is not leaving the Goodison Park this summer, despite big interest from London giants.
And now, the same sources claim that 46-year-old Italian boss is looking back towards his old club Juventus, with experienced Croatian centre-forward Mario Mandzukic a target.
Former Atletico Madrid and Bayern Munich star has only been with the Serie A giants for one season, but the arrival of Gonzalo Higuain and the incredible form of Paulo Dybala means he’s likely to face a battle for game time in Turin.
It is believed that a £25m transfer fee may be needed to sign the 30-year-old attacker, who would likely play a backup role to Diego Costa.
