Chelsea, Inter Milan in Lille talks for Jonathan Ikone

Chelsea have joined the growing interest in Lille striker Jonathan Ikone.

Le 10 Sport says Chelsea could go head-to-head with Inter Milan and former manager Antonio Conte in the race for Ikone.

Both clubs have contacted the French international's agents and the club.

Ikone notched four goals and seven assists in 36 appearances for Lille this season, and has a contract with Les Dogues until 2023.

The 22-year-old could be seen by Blues boss Frank Lampard as a potential alternative to Bayer Leverkusen wunderkind Kai Havertz.
