Conte has Pogba, Nainggolan and Icardi on Chelsea wish list

Chelsea are a step closer to appointing Antonio Conte as their new manager, with the Italian set to fly to London for talks with the Premier League club this week.

Italian publication Corriere dello Sport is reporting the Azzurri boss is set to agree to a three-year contract with the Blues and has already identified a host of European starts he is hoping to bring to Stamford Bridge.

It is understood Conte is confident of luring Juventus star Paul Pogba, Inter Milan's Mauro Icardi and Roma's Radja Nainggolan to the Blues.

It is believed Chelsea could announce the 46-year-old Italian as their new manager as early as this weekend.
