    Chelsea: Inter set their sights on Oscar & Willian

    Now everything at Chelsea revolves around Antonio Conte. The Italian tactician has won over all the doubters as his team stake their claim for the Premier League title. His success in West London could also be good news for Inter and their quest to return to be one of European football’s top clubs.
    As Conte moulds his Chelsea team in his style, there looks to be no room anymore for midfield duo Oscar and Willian. Both players are represented by Iranian agent Kia Joorabchian, a man close to the nerazzurri and more importantly, a man close to new owners The Suning Group. Players such as Ramires have passed from the Premier League side to Jiangsu (the Chinese Super-League club owned by Suning), courtesy of the work done by Joorabchian.
    Now it’s the turn of 25-year-old Oscar to fall under the spotlight as he looks to resurrect his career. The Brazilian is tired of sitting on the bench at Stamford Bridge and Serie A could be his next port of call. Inter are known admirers and if they can overcome the fact that he would be classed as a non EU player (of which only two places are allowed in the squads of Serie A) then a January move could be possible.
    His teammate and fellow countryman Willian is also unhappy at his lack of game time under Conte. The 28-year-old has not been in the starting XI since October 1 against Hull City and although he has suffered personal problems with the death of his mother, Conte has inserted Pedro into his place and the Spaniard has returned to the form that everyone knows he is capable of.
