Chelsea set to open talks with Serie A giants to finalise deal for attacking midfielder


Chelsea are expected to soon open talks with Internazionale to finalise the transfer of attacking midfielder Oscar, Gazzetta World has reported.

The report claims that new manager Antonio Conte was not impressed by the Brazilian during pre-season and is ready to sell him if an important offer is made.

The player was linked with Juventus during last summer's transfer window but it now seems that the Nerazzurri are serious in their attempts to sign him.

Conte is expected to take a decision on who to sell in the coming days.

"All 29 players are Chelsea's players at the moment," Conte said when asked about the 24-year-old.

"After this period I speak with my club. I agree after this tour to see all the players and then to take a decision.

"When we finish this period I will take the right decision for the player and for the club. There are players who will stay and others will go. This is football. It is important to be clear with all."
