Antonio Conte wants to bring in four more players at Chelsea before the close of the summer transfer window at the end of the month, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Star is reporting that Conte is keen to add significant reinforcements to his squad before the end of the window following Chelsea’s disastrous 3-2 loss to Burnley in their Premier League opener on Saturday.

The same story says that Chelsea could be set to spend a further £120m in the coming weeks as Conte looks to strengthen his squad before the end of the month.

Chelsea have been relatively active this summer, having already signed Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata.

However, their squad has once again been placed in the spotlight in the wake of their shock loss to Burnley in front of their home fans at the weekend.

The same story says that Chelsea are weighing up potential moves for Tottenham full-back Danny Rose and Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

The article also says that the Blues have all but given up hope of signing either Antonio Candreva or Alex Sandro from Serie A this summer.

Chelsea continue their Premier League campaign with a crunch clash against Tottenham at Wembley this weekend.
