Conte will undoubtedly be keen to improve the quality of his side and despite signing Richarlison over the summer, they seem to be one short in terms of their attacking options. 

Kudus is enjoying a brilliant campaign with Ajax and really caught the eye during the Champions League group stages. He scored a stunning goal at Anfield and managed to get on the scoresheet four times in six games.
