Chelsea are the latest Premier League club to show an interest in signing Dani Alves, according to Sky in Italy.
The champions have joined Manchester City in considering a move for the Juventus right-back, who won a league and cup double last season in his first year in Italy.
Chelsea have already tried to sign Juve's left-back Alex Sandro this summer, according to the Serie A winners' general director Giuseppe Marotta.
And news of their interest in Brazilian Alves emerged hours after they joined the race to sign Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who played in both wing-back roles for Arsenal towards the end of last season.
Conte converted Victor Moses into a right wing-back early on last season, while Marcos Alonso was a regular on the left.
Moses was sent off at Wembley as Chelsea were beaten by Arsenal in the FA Cup final, earning a second yellow card for diving under close attention from Oxlade-Chamberlain.
Chelsea are yet to make a signing this summer and there have been widespread reports that Conte is frustrated by the lack of action.
But Sky in Italy say the Italian is close to signing a new contract after positive talks with the club.
