Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke the subject of interest from Chelsea, with Antonio Conte looking to replace Michy Batshuayi.
According to The Mirror, Conte remains unconvinced by Batshuayi and wants to be rid of him in the next transfer window.
The report claims that Conte is, however, an admirer of Crystal Palace striker Benteke.
The Belgian forward has been linked with Chelsea in the past and has a proven track record in the Premier League.
Benteke has been out injured recently but is now back in training and looks set to be fully fit heading into January.
