Antonio Conte comments on remaining Chelsea transfer plans
Antonio Conte is determined to find the right players for Chelsea in the summer transfer window
Antonio Conte insists that he will not be rushed into signing new players at Chelsea just for the sake of it this summer.
The Blues completed their second signing of the summer transfer window on Saturday as they snapped up Leicester City midfielder N’Golo Kante on a five-year contract.
The midfielder is Conte’s second signing of the summer after the arrival of striker Michy Batshuayi from Marseille earlier this month.
Chelsea are inevitably being linked with a host of other players as Conte prepares for his first season as Blues boss.
However, the Italian coach insists that he is working hard with the club to ensure that they find the right kind of players to bring to Stamford Bridge.
Speaking at his post-match news conference after Chelsea’s 2-0 friendly defeat by Rapid Vienna on Saturday, Conte said: “All together we are working to improve the squad.
“We know we have to but we prefer to wait and go for our targets, rather than go with emotion and take the players who don’t adapt to our idea of football.
“I talk every day with the club, it’s very important because we know what the team needs. Myself and the club are on the same line and we know what to do to improve the team.
“But I repeat, we prefer to wait and take the right player rather than taking one only for emotion, that’s not right for me.”
Chelsea moved quickly to appoint Conte as the club’s new manager earlier in the year after the west London side’s sacking of Jose Mourinho back in December.
