Former Premier League Champions Chelsea are reportedly ahead of Liverpool in the race to sign Real Madrid star Lucas Vazquez in the summer.
The Blues, who are yet to decide Conte’s future, are leading the chase for the Spaniard’s signature as they have made an eye-catching offer for his service.
Vazquez, 26, failed to tie-down a spot in Zidane’s starting lineup last season and that has invoked speculations that he is not happy at Santiago Bernabeu.
Though not rated by Zidane, Vazquez is a player whose qualities will be needed by the Blues in their mission to reclaim the Premier League glory next season.
Chelsea are looking to perform better in the League next season after uninspiring performances during last season which saw them finish in the fifth position.
Vazquez is also being tracked by the Gunners, who are desperately hoping to add more flexibility and attacking flair to their players ahead of next season.
Don Balon had earlier reported that Liverpool boss Jurgen has advised his employers to move for Vazquez service in the summer.
In his bid to beat Arsenal and Liverpool to the £56m-rated striker, Roman Abramovich has promised the Los Blancos man that he would be given more chances to prove himself.
Should he eventually join the Blues in the upcoming season, Abramovich might be forced to partway with Brazilian striker Willian, who wasn’t given much time on the pitch by Conte.
