Three players Antonio Conte must sign ahead of next season

Chelsea have had a barnstorming Premier League season and Conte will be hoping to maintain or build on their success next season, which leaves him with no choice than to bolster his squad.

For the most part of the season, Chelsea played with 14-players, with Cesc Fabregas and Willian coming in as super-subs. Conte had maintained a small team who played in fewer competitions than their rival Clubs but the Blues will feature in more competitions next season.

The reigning Premier League Champions have now been linked with a move for several stars. Abramovich is definitely impressed with the tactical prowess of Conte and would sanction a hefty transfer war-chest of the Italian tactician.

All Chelsea needs for next summer is no more than three established players and we take a swipe at three players Chelsea should sign in the summer.

Marco Verratti

Verratti has been linked with a move to Chelsea next summer and he would be a perfect feat for the Blues if we can sign him on. He  would form a perfect midfield partnership with N’golo Kante but would offer more creativity in the middle of the Park for Chelsea.

According to our earlier report, ” PSG are willing to listen to offers for the star midfielder and the Blues are understood to be willing to match his asking price. He currently earns £120k-a-week but his wage will be increased if he completes a deal with Chelsea.”

Alvaro Morata

Morata wants out of the Santiago Bernabeu over scanty playing time. He’s been left on the fringes more often than not even though his goal scoring ratio has been fantastic this season – He has scored 20 goals in all competitions this term for Los Blancos.

Antonio Conte has been a huge fan of the 24-year-old goal poacher but faces stiff competition from Man United for his signature. Conte should break the bank for Morata who would replace Costa in the long term.

Virgil van Dijk

Although Chelsea conquer the League, their defense have been a tad leaky as compared to Tottenham and Manchester United. Conte must bolster this aspect of the squad to provide option for Azpilicueta and Cahil.

Van Dijk has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge as the Blues prepare for the exit of John Terry. Van Dijk would be a perfect feat for Chelsea. We should go for him.
