Chelsea offered £55m (€64m) to bring Marco Verratti from Paris Saint-Germain, but the Italy star is also wanted by Juventus, Inter and Milan.
According to The Sun, Conte has given the green light to try to sign Verratti for a fee in the region of £55m.
Verratti now commands a wage of £120,000 a week in Paris - a deal that Comte is willing to improve if the player decides to move to the Premier League.

Conte wants the midfield metronome to add some more creativity to his Blues squad, especially with the challenge of Champions League football back on the agenda next season.
The Italian midfielder only signed a new five-year deal in January so it's hard to see how Chelsea will be able to prise him away from the Parc des Princes any time soon.
It's believed PSG won't even listen to any proposal below €80m for the 24-year-old, who is under contract until June 2021.
SunSport understands PSG are willing to sell Verratti and that the player is still weighing up the possibility of a move to west London.При любом использовании материалов сайта и дочерних проектов, гиперссылка на обязательна.
