Conte to keep tabs on Keane later today

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is expected to keep an keen eye on Burnley defender Michael Keane ahead of what could be a potential move for his services in the summer.

The 24-year-old has been the standout performer for the Clarets since their top flight return, and this has kept them at a distance from the relegation places.

According to Metro, Conte will have his focus on the central defender on Sunday afternoon as his side take on the Clarets who have been exceptional under Sean Dyche at home.

The Clarets have won nine of their 13 league outings on their turf, and the Blues are likely to face stiff resistance from Keane and co. in order to halt their title challenge.

Chelsea are currently nine points clear of near rivals Tottenham Hotspur and Arsenal, and they could go a further three points ahead should Manchester City fail to register a win at Bournemouth on Monday night.

The former Manchester United graduate is also a transfer target for Everton.
