According to reports from Italian outlet Calcio Mercato, Chelsea are currently preparing a £38 million bid for Fiorentina striker Federico Bernardeschi.

Chelsea managed to continue their brilliant run of form by claiming a 3-1 victory over Manchester City at the Etihad Stadium over the weekend and the Blues now look odds on favourites to claim the Premier League title.

That said though, there is still a long way to go before Chelsea come close to winning the coveted crown and manager Antonio Conte is certainly not one to allow his players to get complacent.

In order to further boost Chelsea’s hopes of winning the title, Conte is widely expected to be strengthening his squad during the upcoming January transfer window and bringing in a new attacker is said to be a priority for the Italian.

Bernardeschi set for Chelsea move?

Recently, reports had claimed that Conte is currently considering a move for Fiorentina star Federico Bernardeschi over the winter.

Bernardeschi has been one of the stars in the Serie A this season, scoring an impressive 7 goals in 14 appearances so far and Conte is believed to be a keen admirer of the 22-year-old.

In an update to the story, Italian outlet Calcio Mercato have gone on to report that Chelsea are ramping up their pursuit to sign the Italian international by already preparing a bid of around £38 million and such a sizeable offer should see the Blues secure the services of the young attacker.
