Chelsea want to strengthen their attack in January and Antonio Conte has earmarked Lemar of Monaco as a preferred target. Conte appreciates Lemar’s ability to play in central midfield, left wing-back, and as part of a front three, though Chelsea will have to beat both Liverpool and Arsenal to sign the 22-year-old. It is expected Lemar will cost around £90m should he leave in January.
