Real Madrid are reportedly ready to offer both Alvaro Morata and James Rodriguez to Chelsea with two players being targeted in return.
Zinedine Zidane wants to add Eden Hazard and Thibaut Courtois to his ranks at the Bernabeu.
The Blues winger is being lined up as Madrid president Florentino Perez’s latest marquee signing, while they believe Courtois can be lured back to Spain.
And according to the Daily Mail, striker Morata and unsettled playmaker Rodriguez could head in the opposite direction as part-exchange.
Antonio Conte is a big fan of ex-Juventus hitman Morata, having tried to sign him last summer.

Luka Modric and Toni Kroos would flank behind Hazard’s No10 role
Zidane reportedly already has the blueprints for his Madrid starting XI next season.
If they are able to capture Hazard from Chelsea, it could see the end of 4-3-3 at the Bernabeu.
According to the Daily Mail, the Blues winger would feature at the top of a midfield diamond for Madrid.
Luka Modric and Toni Kroos would flank behind Hazard’s No10 role, with Casemiro sitting in front of the defence.
Up front, Gareth Bale is set to become the priority, with ageing Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema to rotate in a 4-1-2-1-2 system.

Who could replace Keylor Navas at Real Madrid in the summer?
Madrid chief Perez reportedly has a plan in place regarding the signing of Kylian Mbappe from Monaco.
The Ligue 1 outfit are determined to stave off interest from the Bernabeu and Manchester United, having apparently put a staggering £103.5million price-tag on the 18-year-old.
Madrid are unwilling to pay crazy figures for the talented young Frenchman.
But according to Spanish outlet Don Balon, Madrid will ask Mbappe not to renew his contract at Monaco if they fail to lower their valuation.
It is claimed the forward wants to play for Madrid, and with his current deal running until 2019, the La Liga giants will look to swoop next summer when Mbappe will have just one year left and his price will drop.
