Chelsea turn to De Vrij

Chelsea are turning their interest towards Lazio centre-back Stefan De Vrij.

The club was told this week that first choice Kalidou Koulibaly is not for sale, even at €50m, as Napoli lock down the Senegal international.

According to the Sunday People, Antonio Conte has moved his focus on to another Serie A defender, De Vrij.

The 24-year-old Dutchman would be available for around £15m (€18m).

Lazio are likely to capitulate at that price, especially after he missed practically all of last season with a serious knee injury.
