Chelsea boss Conte already lining up move for Genoa superkid Pietro Pellegri

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is taking a close look at Genoa striker Pietro Pellegri.

The 16 year-old scored twice in defeat to Lazio on the weekend.

Secolo XIX says Conte is keen to bring Pellegri to the Chelsea.

The youngster is already six-foot-three and his physical development suggests he may be ready to deal with the rigours of English top-flight action.

It saw him become the first player born in 2001 to score in Italy's top flight — weeks after Moise Kean had become the first class of 2000 goal-getter.
