Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is plotting a January move for Lazio striker Ciro Immobile.

Immobile has been in sensational form this season and only penned a new deal last week.

However, The Sun says Blues owner Roman Abramovich is moving to try to bring in Immobile, who Conte believes would complement Alvaro Morata perfectly in attack.

Lazio president Claudio Lotito has already turned down a bid of around £62million from an unnamed Chinese Super League side — however, would likely do business from upwards of £53m with Chelsea.

The Blues will not match the asking price, but they could offer squad players plus cash.

Immobile, 27, would welcome the chance to work with Conte again, who was Juventus manager while he was in the youth team.
