And while the transfer window is still open, Conte will try and get his hands on some more talent. Let us look at some of the latest news and rumors.
Starting with the hottest rumor, Chelsea are looking to buy back former striker Romelu Lukaku from Everton, to whom Chelsea sold Lukaku for 28 million pounds two years ago.
