Chelsea are set to announce deals to sign Tiemoue Bakayoko and Antonio Rudiger in the coming days, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Blues are set to confirm the arrivals of both players as Antonio Conte looks to ready his team for a return to the Champions League next season.

The west London side are on the lookout for significant reinforcements this summer as Conte prepares for his second season in charge at the west London club.

And the same article states that the Blues are set to tie up their next two deals in the coming days as Chelsea’s squad prepare to report back to Cobham for pre-season training on Monday.

Chelsea were thought to be close to signing Romelu Lukaku from Everton this summer but that deal took a twist when Manchester United beat the Blues to the signature of the Belgian striker on Saturday.

That leaves Chelsea looking for a new striker this summer, with Diego Costa’s future at the club still remaining unclear.

Chelsea won the Premier League title in Antonio Conte’s first campaign at the club last season.
