CHELSEA are eyeing Leonardo Bonucci or Virgil van Dijk.
The Blues are expected to splash the cash this summer with Champions League football returning to Stamford Bridge next season.
Starsport understands Romelu Lukaku has already agreed terms to re-join the Blues this summer.
And according to the Evening Standard, Antonio Conte wants to bring in top defenders as well.
They say the Italian will loan out Kurt Zouma this summer.
Chelsea want the France international to play regular first-team football after being sidelined for a year with a knee ligament injury.
The Standard say Lyon and Nice are keen on the 22-year-old but Conte will not loan him out until he has signed a new centre-half.
Zouma is not pushing to leave Stamford Bridge and he’s willing to fight for his place under Conte.
But with a new defender expected to join the Blues, as well as Andreas Christensen returning from his two-year loan spell at Borussia Monchengladbach, Zouma’s exit is likely.
Bonucci had a fine season for Juventus this campaign, guiding them to the league and cup double.
Van Dijk missed half of the season through injury but Southampton still want at least £50m for the Dutch stopper.
