Chelsea lodge £55M bid for Paris Saint-Germain midfield maestro

Chelsea have launched a £55 million bid for Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Marco Verratti, according to reports.

Former Italy manager Conte sees Verratti as a way to increase his creative options next season.

Conte believes the 24-year-old can bring some quality and playmaking to his side as they look to make a successful return to the Champions League next term, and is already said to have offered £55m for his services.

PSG are willing to cash in on the midfielder, who is valued at £55million, but it is believed that Verratti has reluctant to leave the French club, and is still hopeful of improving his current £120,000-a-week deal.

The talented playmaker would compliment N'Golo Kante perfectly if he was to move to west London and would provide Conte with real depth in the middle of the park alongside Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas. With the team having to re-adapt next season to the additional rigours of European football, the Blues' boss would like greater tactical flexibility in his selections.

The Sun do report, however, that PSG are open to the idea of selling Verratti, and he is still weighing up the possibility of making a stunning switch to Stamford Bridge.

The Italian midfielder only signed a new five-year deal in January so it's hard to see how Chelsea will be able to prise him away from the Parc des Princes any time soon.
