Chelsea boss Antonio Conte ready to seal shock signing of African star

Chelsea Manager Antonio Conte

Chelsea are looking to snap up a shock move for Juventus midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah during the upcoming summer transfer window.

Antonio Conte who will take charge of Chelsea after the Euros end in 2016 has already been looking to build his new squad. He will replace interim boss Guus Hiddink who has been caretaker boss since Mourinho was sacked in December following a horrendous third year during his second spell.

He has reportedly been monitoring many players and one of them is Ghanaian midfielder Kwadwo Asamoah with the hopes of finalizing a move.

Chelsea have also been linked with Radja Nainggolan having already enquirer about the Roma man. Asamoah has scored 5 goals in 105 appearances for Juventus after arriving in 2012. However, interest from Stamford Bridge could see him move to London.

Arsenal have been keeping tabs on Asamoah as well but it’s not the Emirates he will be going to as Arsene Wenger is believed to have lost interest in the 27-year-old midfielder.

The Ghanaian midfielder is versatile player. He is able to uphold various potions on the left side of the field be it as a left–wing back or left midfield. He is the type of player that Conte admires as he often likes his full backs to drift forward or play with many midfielders and Asamoah would fit both of those criteria.
It’s reported that Conte is looking to snatch up more Serie A stars as Antonio Rudiger and Samir Handanovic have also been monitored.  Conte seems keen to uplift his squad from many Serie A players as he works closely with the league and Italian players. Whether this approach will be successful in England will be interesting to see.
