Chelsea To Move For Antonio As Jonas Hector Interest Cools

The Blues are seriously targeting a move for the versatile West Ham man but they are yet to show any intention of the signing of the Koln defender

Chelsea are interested in signing Michail Antonio as they look to strengthen their options in the wing-back position but, despite reports, are not interested in Koln's Jonas Hector, Goal understands.

Blues boss Antonio Conte is keen to reinforce his defence in January and has already recalled Nathan Ake from Bournemouth as he struggles to zero in on key targets, with a game against title holders Leicester City beckoning on Saturday.
His hopes of signing Antonio could be dashed early, however, as the Hammers have no interest of selling the 26-year-old in January.
