Chelsea remain keen on Lazio defender Stefan de Vrij despite the Serie A side have reportedly offered him a new and improved deal, according to Calciomercato.com.

Antonio Conte reportedly retains an interest in De Vrij and with John Terry entering the twilight years of his career and Kurt Zouma still sidelined with a serious knee injury, a move when the transfer window reopens could be on the cards.

De Vrij was part of the Holland side that reached the semi-finals of the World Cup under former Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal two years ago.

The 24-year-old is in his third season with Lazio after signing from Feyenoord in 2014.
