Inter Milan are still in the hunt to sign Chelsea midfielder Oscar in the January transfer window. The Brazil international has barely featured under Antonio Conte since the 3-4-3 formation change.

Oscar was a regular at the start of the campaign when Conte utilised him in a 4-1-4-1 formation. However, following defeats to Liverpool and Arsenal, the Italian made the switch to a 3-4-3 setup, and this has in hand affected the Brazilian's chances of first-team football.

According to ESPN, the Nerazzurri will seek to test the Blues' resolve in the New Year with manager Stefano Pioli keen on adding the 25-year-old to his ranks.

But, any potential deal is likely to be blocked by Conte, who feels the player has a crucial role to play for Chelsea as they seek to lift the Premier League title this term.
