Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is desperate to add a couple of players to his squad before the transfer window closes at the end of the month and has been targeting a move for Manchester United target Sergi Roberto.
The Spaniard rose to prominence last season after impressing in a right-back role for Barcelona as a stand-in for the injured Aleix Vidal and has emerged as a possible Chelsea signing.
Primarily a central midfielder, Roberto could in effect plug two holes for the Blues given his versatility, making him a very coveted option by Antonio Conte.

Barcelona do not want to sell him and may cave in to his demands should he threaten to leave.
