Southampton legend Matt Le Tissier has claimed Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is keen to land Edin Dzeko to Stamford Bridge as “strengthening the squad” is the main target of the Italian at this stage.
“I think they are in trouble in terms of the top four and that it will be very tight” he told Sky Sports.
“I think Spurs have had their dodgy spell for the season and will challenge Chelsea all the way”.
Le Tissier added: “Antonio Conte doesn’t look like a man loving his job and if he doesn’t get his way in terms of strengthening the squad then I could see a parting of ways”.
“In terms of a back-up striker, Dzeko is as good as any out there, averaging a goal every 1.5 games over the last 18 months.”
