Conte's search for center back lead Chelsea to Romagnoli

Chelsea have made a £35million offer for AC Milan shield Alessio Romagnoli. 

Antonio Conte met with the club's pecking order on Wednesday as he hopes to include no less than three more signings to his squad before next Wednesday's due date. 

A middle back remains his need and Chelsea have stopped their offer, which incorporates additional items, for the exquisite Romagnoli regardless of Milan saying he is not available to be purchased. 

The 21-year-old joined Milan from Roma for £21m the previous summer yet Chelsea will give them a generous benefit as they become exasperated in their endeavors to fortify their defence. 

Torino's Nikola Maksimovic remains an option however Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly is talking about an agreement expansion.
