It is only natural that a club's manager expresses “loyalty” when it comes to bringing in the best talents from his native country. For example, Arsene Wenger has regularly turned to the best talents in France, from Pires, Patrick Vieira, Laurent Koscienly, Thierry Henry,Olivier Giroud, to the recent signing of Alexandre Lacazette. And a similar method in recruitment could as well follow at Chelsea under the direction of Antonio Conte. Italy and Juventus defender, Leonardo Bonucci was a prime target for Conte last season. Once again, there is speculation that Conte remains interested in the center back.

So, along with Leonardo Bonucci, which Italian players that'll best fit in Chelsea and should Antonio Conte consider a move for any of these four players this summer transfer market? Here's a look.

Roberto Gagliardini — Atalanta

Tribal Football reports Antonio Conte is willing to sign in another defensive midfielder. Atalanta's Roberto Gagliardini could be well worth considering. Roberto Gagliardini spent the second stanza of last term on loan at Inter Milan, a move that was apparently seen as something as gamble. The 23-year-old is still fresh to the senior stage, having failed to make much of an impact at parent club Atalanta. However Gagliardini's stock has risen at Inter Milan. Roberto Gagliardini could thrive under the tutelage of Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.

Leonardo Bonucci — Juventus

At the age of 30, Leonardo Bonucci is not a signing that Chelsea owner Roman Abrahimovich will be particularly fond of. However, following the departure of former captain John Terry to Aston Villa this summer, Chelsea boss Antonio Conte will be ready to add experience to his defense ranks. The Italy international fits the bill, not to mention he is still widely considered as one of the best center backs in Europe.

Marco Verratti — Paris Saint-Germain

There are not many superior midfielders compared to Marco Verratti. He is considered the heir to Andres Iniesta's throne at Barcelona. However, Paris Saint-Germain are standing firm in warding off any possible move to cement interest in a versatile player who would walk into the Premier League champions' squad.

Andrea Belotti — Torino

At the age of 23, Andrea Belotti stepped into the spotlight in style last term finishing up with three goals (scored 26 goals) less than the Serie A Golden Boot winner Edin Dzeko, who netted 29 goals. Arguably, it was Belotti's most prolific season and, understandably, the 23-year-old attracted quite a bit of interest in the transfer window. With Chelsea manager Antonio Conte willing to let go Diego Costa, he is obviously on the hunt for a new center striker. Still, yet to reach his peak, Andrea Belotti could be worth every single penny of what is expected to be a hefty transfer fee should the young striker quits Torino this summer.
