Chelsea will consider rivalling Liverpool for RB Leipzig star Naby Keita.
The midfielder is wanted by Kop boss Jurgen Klopp to bolster his midfield – but he faces competition.
Antonio Conte has the 22-year-old firmly in his sights as he looks to ease N’Golo Kante’s workload next season.
Blues boss Conte wants a squad to compete in the Champions League and Premier League and will look to add numbers.
Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko is a target but Keita is now in his sights too.
Keita could cost £25million from his German side after catching the eye of scouts, with Liverpool the first to show interest.
The midfielder has played 29 league games for RB Leipzig this season and has netted seven times.
He arrived at RB Leipzig last summer from RB Salzburg for an undisclosed fee.
Keita, who is a goalscoring box-to-box midfielder, has represented Guinea on the international stage.
