Conte is reportedly a huge fan of the left-back.
According to the ‘Daily Mail’, Chelsea will try to lure the Brazilian international away from Juventus with a £60m bid, after failing to sign him during the last transfer window.
However, Juventus are far less willing to part with such an important player halfway through the season, so the Blues might have to wait until the summer.
Conte never worked with Sandro, as the 26-year-old joined Juventus one year after he left, but he will have seen him in action in the Serie A plenty of times during his time in charge of the Italy national team.
The Chelsea board are hoping that giving the Italian coach one of the players he admires most will encourage him to stay for longer in London, amidst reports that he wants to return to his home country at the end of the season.
