Antonio Conte wants to have the same power as Manchester City boss Pep Guardiola at Chelsea FC, Ian Wright has claimed.

The defending Premier League champions have endured a difficult second season under the Italian head coach.

Conte transformed Chelsea FC into title winners last season despite inheriting a squad that finished in tenth place last term.

The Blues signed seven players in the 2017 summer transfer window, before Chelsea FC added three more players to their squad in January.

The west London side’s hopes of finishing the top four were extinguished last weekend following a 3-1 loss to Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.

Conte has spoken in the British media about his discontent with Chelsea FC’s transfer policy since taking over the reins of the club.

Former Arsenal striker Wright believes Conte is desperate to have the same power as Guardiola at Chelsea FC.

“Pep can get anyone he wants,” Wright told BBC Radio 5 Live. “lHe is an amazing coach.

“Conte recognises that and he realises what he needs to do to compete with that.”

The Blues are a staggering 28 points behind runaway Premier League leaders to highlight their regression this term.

Chelsea FC have lost nine times in 31 games in the Premier League this term despite winning the league with two games to spare last term.
