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.
