The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are toasting to reports of a few proposed new signings…
The Blues are on a roll this season, but ever the perfectionist – it would appear as though Antonio Conte is plotting a few upgrades for his already impressive team.
Despite both N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic forming a fantastic partnership this season, it seems as though Conte is not pleased with his lack of depth in the heart of the midfield – and the Italian has subsequently set his sights on a couple of Europe’s most impressive midfield stars.
One player that has been linked with the Blues is Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal, who, undoubtedly, would have a huge impact in the Premier League.
One less well-known target is Franck Kessie, who currently plays for Atlanta in Serie A, who is a box-to-box midfielder who would add a real dose of energy to the Chelsea midfield.
Should both players arrive, it appears likely that Conte would shift to a 3 man midfield as he looks to accommodate them all. Conte has seemingly set his sights on a midfield rebuild – and the results would produce quite the impressive midfield trio.
With that said, could this be the dream new-look Chelsea midfield under Conte?
