Conte failed to land the versatile Candreva in the January transfer window — but is confident he can get his man this time.

SunSport understands Inter are reluctant to sell the 30-year-old, who they bought from Lazio last summer for £18.7m.

Inter would rather offload Ivan Perisic to Manchester United — but the Red Devils have baulked at their £48m asking price.

Candreva is willing to move to Stamford Bridge after the Italian giants disappointed last season.

Conte worked with him when he was Italy boss and the prospect of linking up again, at a club challenging on all fronts, would be tempting.

The champions are also ready to offer Candreva a big rise on his £85,000-a-week wages at Inter.

Conte was interested in Real Madrid’s Brazilian right-back Danilo but he now looks set to join City.
