Chelsea have returned to AC Milan with a new bid for centre-back Alessio Romagnoli after seeing an opening €30million offer turned down.

Antonio Conte, who has been critical of the ‘crazy’ transfer market, is determined to add to his centre-back options and take the strain off first-choice pairing John Terry and Gary Cahill.

The Blues have seemingly moved on from their primary target Kalidou Koulibaly, who according to La Gazzetta dello Sport, has been offered a new, improved deal with current club Napoli which would see his release clause upped to €70m should he accept.

Romagnoli would be allowed to leave the San Siro if a suitable replacement can be found, and believes Chelsea have tempted the Serie A club once again with a €35million offer and an extra €5million bonus based on performances.
