Chelsea plan to raid Monaco for Benjamin Mendy and Bernardo Silva as they seek to strengthen their squad under manager Antonio Conte.

The pair were part of the side that dumped Manchester City out of the UEFA Champions League, and Conte is prepared to offer a substantial fee to tempt the Ligue 1 club to sell in the summer.

Steve Stammers of the Mirror reported the Premier League leaders will put £40 million on the table, and Conte is said to have “been hugely impressed with the performances of the 22-year-olds.”

According to Stammers, Mendy is currently valued at £12 million and would be purchased to strengthen the Blues’ left-back position. Portugal international Silva would cost £28 million and can play in a number of attacking roles.
