The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern want to see a few players join the club this summer, and it appears as though Antonio Conte agrees…
Discussing what Chelsea will need to compete next season, according to the Evening Standard, Conte has talked about the matter of transfers, stating: “Do we need more players? Yes for sure”. Interestingly, he has also noted that a team that is competing in the Champions League will need “25 or 26 players”, and given that Chelsea’s squad is far closer to the 20-man mark – it appears as though big changes will be forthcoming this summer.
That is, of course, if Conte can get Chelsea chairman Roman Abramovich to sign off on a summer of spending, with the Russian owner seemingly becoming increasingly keen to reduce the spending at Stamford Bridge in recent years.
There are, of course, a few major holes in the Chelsea first team that need plugging, though. Notably, the Blues clearly need a new forward, whilst the impending departure of John Terry will also demand the signing of a new defender. What’s more, Chelsea also lack general squad depth – and so Conte will likely be expecting several other players to come in and help bulk out his squad.
