Eden Hazard has backed Chelsea’s dealings in the summer transfer window as the Blues look to compete for trophies on four fronts this season.

The Blues were one of the Premier League’s busiest clubs in the summer transfer window as Antonio Conte brought in significant reinforcements following their title triumph last term.

Chelsea lost a number of key players such as John Terry and Nemanja Matic over the summer but the Blues brought in six new faces before the transfer window closed last month.

The west London side signed Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko, Alvaro Morata, Danny Drinkwater and Davide Zappacosta as Conte added to his squad.

And Hazard believes that Chelsea have added genuine quality to their squad this summer, rather than just simply bolstering their options in terms of numbers.

Hazard told the Evening Standard: “All of Chelsea’s signings are internationals.

“You need quality when you play for this club because we want to win a lot of things.

“The more players we have the better it is for us.”

Chelsea are currently preparing for their crunch Premier League clash against Arsenal at Stamford Bridge on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues head into the game having won their last three games in the top flight following their victories over Tottenham, Everton and Leicester.

Arsenal, meanwhile, have beaten Bournemouth and Leicester so far this season, while also losing to Liverpool and Stoke.
