Jamie Carragher reveals two players Antonio Conte must sign for Chelsea
Jamie Carragher tells Chelsea manager Antonio Conte to sign Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini
Jamie Carragher has urged Antonio Conte to make Italy and Juventus duo Leonardo Bonucci and Giorgio Chiellini his first signings as Chelsea manager.
Conte’s Italy side were 2-0 winners against Belgium in their Euro 2016 opener thanks to goals from Emanuele Giaccherini and Graziano Pelle either side of half-time in Lyon.
The 46-year-old was named as Chelsea’s new permanent manager earlier this year and the former Juventus defender is set to take over the reins at Stamford Bridge after Euro 2016.
The Italy head coach has been linked with a move to sign Argentina and Napoli striker Gonzalo Higuain in recent months as well as highly-rated Juventus star Alvaro Morata.
Former Liverpool defender Carragher believes Conte should make Juventus centre-halves Bonucci and Chiellini his first signings as Chelsea manager following their outstanding performance against Belgium.
Education for any defender tonight, proper defenders that Italian back 3. Bonucci & Chiellini have to be on Conte's CFC list! #BELITA
