Conte has Chelsea scouts check Richmond Boakye against Arsenal; Swansea, Crystal Palace also keen

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte fancies a reunion with his former Juventus striker Richmond Boakye.

The Daily Mail says Chelsea scouts will check on Ghana international striker Boakye during next week's Europa League tie between Red Star Belgrade and Arsenal.

The 24-year-old Boakye has scored three league goals this season and a spectacular winner for the Serbian side in their 1-0 win over Cologne in the Europa League last month.

Boakye worked with Conte at Juve, though made his name away from the Bianconeri on-loan.

Celtic have also run the rule over Boakye while Swansea City and Crystal Palace are monitoring his progress.
