Chelsea are launching a bid for Barcelona defender  Sergi Roberto.

According to Sport, the Blues head coach Antonio Conte has made the Spain international a priority target this month.

And the London club are already in contact with Barca about meeting Roberto’s €40m buyout clause.

The 48-year-old specialist has pushed Chelsea chiefs to land Roberto, though the player is still to be convinced.

The key is the manager can offer Roberto a regular start in midfield as Nemanja Matic’s replacement, whereas the youngster is viewed as a wing-back at Barca.
