Antonio Conte kept tabs on Nikola Kalinic
Chelsea boss Antonio Conte was tracking the performance of Croatian international Nikola Kalinic during Fiorentina's 2-1 defeat at Torino. The striker previously featured for Blackburn Rovers in the Premier League.
The Italian wants to add a new marksman to his ranks in January with Michy Batshuayi being the sole back-up option to Diego Costa.
Kalinic has established himself into a lethal striker in the Serie A, and his prior experience in the English top flight is one which has captured the attention of Conte.
Apart from Kalinic, the ex-Juventus coach was keeping track on Torino's Andrea Belotti, who has already netted five times this season.
London rivals Arsenal are also interested in pursuing a winter deal for Belotti as they seek to find a long-term replacement for Olivier Giroud.
