Meanwhile, 26-year-old midfielder Fofana has scored seven goals in 31 league appearances this season. The six-time Ivory Coast international was a member of the Man City academy and spent the 2014-15 season on loan at Championship Fulham.
He failed to make a competitive appearance for City but has had a steady career since joining Udinese in 2016 for £2.5m. Fofana moved to Lens two years later and made 66 appearances for the French outfit.
The report shows that Conte may be looking to strengthen his midfield this summer, although he already has plenty to choose from in midfield. Bentancur and Pierre-Emile Hojbjerg have forged a great relationship, while Harry Winks and Oliver Skipp await first-team opportunities.
