Transfer News!! See The Two Players That Chelsea Boss Conte Wants To Sign After Community Shield Loss
Chelsea coach, Antonio Conte, who has recently voiced frustration about the depth of his squad, is set to welcome three new players before the transfer window closes.
The UK Telegraph reports that the Premier League champions will add to both their defence and midfield options this summer.
Conte’s ranks could soon include both PSG’s Serge Aurier and Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk, while potential midfielders include Leicester’s Danny Drinkwater, Everton’s Ross Barkley and Antonio Candreva of Inter Milan.
Van Dijk’s decision to submit a transfer request on Monday, will result in a swift Chelsea effort to open talks over a player who is still interesting Liverpool.
And the Blues could also face competition in their attempts to land Aurier, who is a reported target for Manchester United.
