Dennis Wise has hinted that Chelsea FC owner Roman Abramovich could look to spend big in the summer transfer window.

The defending Premier League champions have struggled in their title defence this term to heap pressure on Antonio Conte.

The Italian head coach led the west London side to the Premier League crown with two games to spare last term.

Chelsea FC are in fifth place in the Premier League table and eight points behind Tottenham Hotspur, who occupy the final Champions League spot.

The Blues could still finish the season with some silverware if Chelsea FC manage to beat Southampton and reach the FA Cup final.

Former Chelsea FC star Wise believes Abramovich could easily delve into his pockets to overhaul the Blues squad this summer.

“Abramovich has done it before and he will do it again to keep Chelsea where they need to be,” Wise told Sky Sports. “He isn’t afraid to do that.

“It’s the difference between Chelsea and Arsenal/Spurs.”

Chelsea FC suffered a 4-1 loss to FC Barcelona in the Champions League round of 16 to prematurely end their European challenge.

The Blues have won the Premier League title in two of the last three seasons under Jose Mourinho and his permanent successor Conte.
