Agent Vincenzo D’Ippolito claims that Antonio Conte is a big fan of the versatile attacking midfielder and looks set to pounce.
Uruguay international Laxalt has impressed in Serie A since his move to Italy in 2013.
D’Ippolito admits he’d love to take Laxalt to London for a link-up with former Juventus boss Conte.
He told Calciomercato.com: “Chelsea? It is one of the clubs [interested] because Conte saw him in Italy, he knows his qualities and he would like to take him to England.”
