Reports : Chelsea all set to sign “3 Superstars” before the transfer window ends

Reports : Chelsea all set to sign “3 Superstars” before the transfer window ends

Chelsea coach Antonio Conte has been pretty vocal about his disappointment at the transfer business conducted by the club, but it looks like things might be taking a better turn for the Italian manager. According to The Telegraph, the Blues are poised to announce 3 blockbuster signings before the transfer window ends.

The Chelsea manager has already brought in Tiemoue Bakayoko, Antonio Rudiger, Alvaro Morata and Willy Caballero this summer and hopes to double that number with a late recruitment drive.

The club’s penalty shoot-out defeat to Arsenal on Sunday highlighted the squad’s lack of depth and captain Gary Cahill has since said the club cannot afford key injury blows.

Both Bakayoko and Eden Hazard will miss the start of the season with injuries, while Diego Costa is set to leave the club before the end of the month.

Conte’s defence is set to be bolstered by Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk (who handed in a transfer request) and PSG’s Serge Aurier while either one of Danny Drinkwater, Ross Barkley or Antonio Candreva could join to provide an extra midfield option. The Blues will have to fend off competition from Liverpool and Manchester United for the signings of Van Dijk and Aurier respectively.

Chelsea have missed out on a number of high profile signings like Romelu Lukaku and Alex Sandro and having lost out on Matic to Manchester United, the Blues’ squad looks slightly jaded and lacking in depth for the coming season.

Conte has time and again spoken about adding quality players to his side and although he has been frustrated so far by Chelsea’s transfer activity (or the lack of), these three potential arrivals should significantly boost the morale of the Premier League champions and their manager.

Also, Conte has long been on the lookout for an attacking full-back and Serge Aurier fits the bill perfectly. Capable of barnstorming runs and putting in dangerous crosses, the Ivory Coast international could be available for as less as £27 million although the Blues will have to fight off United for his signing.

Coming to the midfield, Danny Drinkwater is the deal which could most likely happen although it is believed that Conte prefers Italian international Antonio Candreva for his versatility. Ross Barkley is another interesting option although Everton’s insistence on getting close to £45 million for the England international could prove to be a stumbling block.
