Chelsea are considering a move for Jamie Vardy, according to the Telegraph. The England international has been a star at Leicester City and was one of the main reasons the Foxes won the Premier League title in 2015/16.

Despite the arrival of Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid for what the BBC reported to be a £60M fee, it looks as though Antonio Conte is still in the market for another centre-forward.

If Chelsea did sign another striker, it would give Conte the option to use a 3-5-2 system, which he favoured during his time with Juventus.

The Metro report that Vardy was set to join Arsenal last summer but pulled out of the move at the last moment because he wanted to help Leicester City in their first ever campaign in the Champions League.

As well as Vardy, the Telegraph’s report claims that Chelsea have an eye on Swansea’s Fernando Llorente, Torino’s Andrea Belotti and Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke.
