CHELSEA boss Antonio Conte has denied he was interested in making a £40million move for Celtic striker Moussa Dembele.
However, the Italian admitted he wanted to sign his Hoops team-mate Craig Gordon.
The Stamford Bridge gaffer revealed: “Honestly, for Dembele I never talked with my club about this player.
“With Gordon, we tried because we tried to help Asmir Begovic to satisfy his request to go and play every game.
“But I always told him that if we were able to find a right solution, he could leave.
“For sure, Gordon was one of the goalkeepers in the list to try to bring in here.
“We tried, but when the club told us it was not possible to sell, we finished.”
Somewhat contradictory to this, we understand that Chelsea have noted their interest in signing Moussa Dembele and did so in the week before the transfer window closed.
