Antonio Conte wants at least three more signings at Chelsea this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Telegraph is reporting that the Blues are still on the lookout for a number of new signings this summer as Conte prepares for his second season in charge at Stamford Bridge.

The same report says that Conte wants “at least” three more players this summer as he gears his team up for a return to the Champions League next season.

The story also says that the Italian manager has sanctioned the sales of both Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa this summer as he freshens up his squad.

Chelsea have been linked with a whole host of players this summer but have so far only concluded deals to land Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata.

Conte is likely to want to further bolster his squad as the Blues prepare to try and compete for trophies on four fronts next season.

The west London side missed out on a domestic double last term when they lost 2-1 to Arsenal in the FA Cup final back in May.
