Lamptey, 21, has made a successful comeback after spending most of 2021 with a hamstring problem.

The former Chelsea academy product shows no sign of the setback affecting his development.

And he has impressed in 12 appearances for Brighton this season.

Surprisingly, Chelsea did not include a buy-back clause when selling Sterling to Brighton.

However, it is reported that the Blues will receive a portion of any fees received by the Seagulls.

Spurs are willing to allow Matt Doherty to leave this window, with a transferable loan back to Wolves on the card.

Wanderers sold the 29-year-old right-back to Tottenham for £15m two years ago.

But he has struggled in North London and has failed to start a Premier League game this term.

Conte is a fan of England Under-21 star Lamptey, who has also attracted coveted glances from Arsenal.

Lamptey joined Chelsea for around £3m in 2020.

But his progress under Graham Potter has been such that Albion will be looking for a fee similar to the £50m they received for Ben White from Arsenal in the summer.
