The Frenchman has long been a target of Europe's elite and could make a move away this summer if the price is right.

The fact Pogba joined Juventus from Manchester United whilst Conte was manager could play a vital role in luring him to Stamford Bridge, having won Serie A in his two seasons under the Italian.

The 22-year-old once hailed the influence of Conte in 2013: "He is the perfect man to help me achieve my aims."

Conte's contract as Italy manager is set to expire after this summer's European Championships, with the Italian reportedly taking English lessons as he prepares to take up a job in the Premier League.

Pogba would not come cheap, of course, with the France midfielder's market value ever-increasing and thought to be in the region of £70 million.

Atletico Madrid centre-back Jose Gimenez and Paris Saint-Germain's Marco Verratti are also reported targets, whilst Ezequiel Lavezzi has become the latest European star to complete a move to the Chinese Super League.
