Chelsea are set to splash the cash and bring in a number of new signings before the close of the summer transfer window at the end of the month, according to Tony Gale.

The Blues have already found themselves to be under pressure in the Premier League after they slumped to a shock 3-2 loss to Burnley at Stamford Bridge in their opening game of the season last weekend.

The west London side were also beaten by Arsenal in the Community Shield at Wembley at the start of the month to make it a difficult few weeks for Antonio Conte’s men.

Chelsea have been relatively busy in the summer transfer window so far, having brought in Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata.

However, the Blues continue to be linked with a number of other players as Conte looks to assemble a team capable of challenging on four fronts this season.

And Gale is convinced that Chelsea are set to spend big on new signings before the close of the transfer window at the end of the month.

Gale told Sky Sports News on Wednesday morning: “I expect Chelsea to complete signings in the next couple of weeks.

“Why did they sell Matic? Selling people like Matic you need two players to accommodate the position he’s come out of.

“He’s got everything and he did go out of favour a bit for about six months and I could never understand that.

“But when he came back obviously he sealed a place down with [N’Golo] Kante and the two of them are ideal for each other

“When you take that away you think ‘why have you done that?’ For me, as a centre back the two of them in front of you are a dream.

“John Terry could have played until he was 94 with those two in front of him but it was a real mystery.

“The only thing I can say is they must be doing business.”

Chelsea are currently preparing for a trip to Wembley to take on Tottenham as they look to bounce back to winning ways in the Premier League on Sunday afternoon.
