The Blues have the best defensive record in the Premier League – conceding just 11 goals this campaign.
But the Daily Mail say Conte is keen to revamp his options at the back before next season.
The Italian is planning to splash the cash to replace John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic, who are expected to leave the club in the summer.
“Antonio Conte is reportedly ready to overhaul his Chelsea defence”
Juventus star Leonardo Bonucci was Conte’s No.1 target but the Italy international has penned a new deal in Serie A.
So the Chelsea boss has turned his attention to Roma pair Kostas Manolas and Antonio Rudiger.
The Italian side are reportedly willing to sell one of their defenders as they attempt to keep up with financial fair play regulations.
Chelsea could even move for the pair next month when the transfer window opens.
Middlesbrough’s Ben Gibson and Burnley’s Michael Keane also remain on Chelsea’s radar with the Italian open to raiding his Premier League rivals.
The Blues are also set to recall central defender Andreas Christensen, who is currently on loan at Borussia Monchengladbach in the Bundesliga.
The 20-year-old has become an instrumental part of the German side’s progress in the last 12 months, helping them qualify for the Champions League.
