Olivier Giroud

Inter Milan are thought to be looking at a low-cost signing in order to improve their attacking options in January and Antonio Conte has identified Olivier Giroud as a potential target.

The French international has dropped down the pecking orders at Chelsea and he is itching to play regular first-team football.

It will be interesting to see if the Italian side can prise him away from the Premier League club when the transfer window reopens.

N’Golo Kante

N’golo Kante is on Antonio Conte’s wishlist as well and it Inter Milan manage to get through to the knockout rounds of the Champions League, the Italian club might look to back him in the market with some transfer funds. 

Thiago Silva

In other news the Blues are now looking to extend Thiago Silva‘s contract by another year.

The Brazilian defender signed on a one year contract earlier in the summer and he has been quite impressive for the Blues in the Premier League and the Champions League.

He has helped the Blues improve defensively and his leadership qualities are highly rated at the club as well.

Thiago Silva has helped Chelsea keep 5 clean sheets in their last seven games and he seems fit enough to play at this level despite being 36.

Extending his contract for another season might prove to be a smart investment for the Premier League side and it will be interesting to see if Chelsea can get the deal done.
