Chelsea will beat Internazionale and Napoli in the race to sign Lazio winger Antonio Candreva, Italian TV channel Sport Mediaset has revealed.
The Italian is expected to take over from Juan Cuadrado on the wing who will leave Stamford Bridge to join Juventus on a permanent basis.
Candreva is reportedly pushing for a move to Chelsea as he wants to work under Antonio Conte next season.
The 29-year-old was part of Conte's squad for Euro 2016 but his tournament was ended prematurely because of injury.
He was however full of praise for his teammates after the defeat against Germany.
"It's a positive experience, it went badly in the end, but we are proud of what we achieved," Candreva told Sky Sport Italy.
"I didn't expect this injury either, unfortunately it happened. I cheered on the lads."
