Antonio Conte is well known to be keen to strengthen his Blues squad before the transfer window closes on September 1, and with Diego Costa on his way out of the club, a striker could well be on the shopping list.
And Vardy has started this season brightly, scoring twice in Leicester’s 4-3 defeat to Arsenal on the opening day, before coming off injured in the weekend’s win over Brighton.
He’s now as short as 6/4 to be a Chelsea player next with bookies Ladbrokes:

He might be 30 now but Vardy is still one of the deadliest forwards in the English game and he could be the perfect foil for Alvaro Morata.
What do you make of the rumour? Would Vardy be a hit with Chelsea?
