Chelsea will see Andreas Christensen leave them as a free agent in the summer if they fail to convince the Blues defender sign a new deal.
The centre-back has already been linked to a handful of European clubs and Tottenham Hotspur can now be added to the list.
Antonio Conte admitted this week he clashed with Spurs chief Fabio Paratici over Romelu Lukaku and Dejan Kulusevski when they were at Inter Milan and Juventus respectively.
Calciomercato.it now explain the two Serie A sides need to be worried about both the ex-Chelsea boss and Paratici because Conte has identified Stephan de Vrij and Matthijs de Ligt as targets for Spurs.
The Italian coached De Vrij during his time at the San Siro and on the topic of former players, the Chelsea player gets a mention.
Conte managed the Denmark international at Stamford Bridge, where the latter made 40 appearances during the 2017/18 season. Christensen ‘continues to give priority’ to renew his contract at Chelsea.
However, ‘in the last few hours’, the Dane’s representatives have had ‘concrete contacts’ with both Tottenham and Bayern Munich.
Regarding Spurs, it’s claimed they made contact with the agent due to a ‘clear indication’ from Conte, who seemingly wants to work with the Dane again.
