Inter Milan are being linked with a move for Chelsea left-back Marcos Alonso.
The Spaniard faces an uncertain future at Stamford Bridge following the signing of England international Ben Chilwell from Leicester City, and may be open for a chance to be reunited with the man who made him a first-choice when he was in charge of the West London club.
Any move though could depend on players leaving the Italian club first, with out-of-favour full-back Dalbert one man who could depart from the San Siro.
It will not be the first time that Conte has signed a former player from his Chelsea days either. Victor Moses spent the second half of last season on loan at the Serie A side.
Alonso was signed from Sampdoria for a fee of £24 million and has made 149 appearances for Chelsea in all competitions, scoring 22 times, although he was by no means a certain starter under Frank Lampard, even before the signing of Chilwell.
