Southampton striker Graziano Pelle could be reunited with Antonio Conte at Chelsea next season.

The Italian is expected to pair up with manager Conte at Euro 2016, after which the 46-year-old will take charge of the Blues.

According to The Sun, the former Juventus head coach will look to bring his fellow counterpart to Stamford Bridge in an attempt to strengthen his squad ahead of the 2016/17 campaign.

It is added that the Saints would be open to the player's sale considering he is heading into the final year on his contract.

Pelle has had a tough time at Southampton this season with Shane Long being preferred for centre-forward role.
