Conte Want Chelsea Finish Transfer of Five Players
Antonio Conte wants Chelsea to finish the recruitment of five major players this summer on top of a deal for Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger.
After a quiet start to the summer transfer window, English Premier League champions Chelsea began to make progress on a number of deals and Bakayoko (AS Monac0) and Rudiger (AS Roma) are believed to be closer to joining.
But Conte is determined to strengthen his squad at Stamford Bridge because only he managed to bring goalkeeper from Argentina, Willy Caballero on a free transfer from Manchester City.
The former Juventus and Italian national coach knows he has to bring in a number of great players as Chelsea next season will be back in the Champions League and want an additional five new players above Bakayoko and Rudiger, according to The Daily Telegraph.
The West London club has identified Brazilian Alex Sandro as the main target and the Juventus player is said to be keen to move to the Premier League.
The Blues also expressed interest in Real Madrid’s Danilo, who is worth about £ 30million, while the club remains in pole position to sign Romelu Lukaku’s contract from Everton.
Conte believes Belgian national team player Lukaku is the ideal successor to Diego Costa, having previously told the Spanish striker that he is free to go this summer with his desired goal being Atletico Madrid.
