Chelsea ready to sign three top players to keep Antonio Conte happy – report

Antonio Conte wants Chelsea to complete deals to sign three players in the summer transfer window, according to reports.

The Sun is reporting that the Chelsea manager is demanding funds to sign Juventus full-back Alex Sandro, Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayoko.

The same article states that Conte wants to sign Sandro to improve his options at right wing-back, while the Chelsea boss is hoping to sign Bakayoko to add more steel to his midfield.

Diego Costa has been made surplus to requirements this summer despite scoring 20 times in 35 games to help the west London side to win the Premier League title last term.

According to the Sun, Conte wants to bring in Everton star Lukaku to bolster his attacking options as Chelsea prepare to battle on four fronts in the 2017-18 Premier League campaign.

Chelsea finished seven points clear of Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League table last term, securing their second title in three seasons.

However, Conte’s side lost 2-1 to bitter rivals Arsenal in the FA Cup final at Wembley last month.
