Antonio Conte to send message to Chelsea about summer signings – report
Antonio Conte will stress the need for Chelsea to "quickly" ramp up their summer recruitment drive this week, say reports
Antonio Conte will stress the need for Chelsea to “quickly” ramp up their summer recruitment efforts when he meets with club officials later this week, according to reports in the British media.
The Evening Standard is reporting that Conte is keen to push for at least six new signings this summer as he prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.
The same report claims that Conte is due to hold talks with Chelsea later this week as he prepares to sign a new contract with the west London club.
The article also states that Conte, who is currently on holiday in Italy, will sign a new contract worth £9.5m a year to keep him at Stamford Bridge until at least 2021.
It was a successful first season for Conte at Chelsea, as he led the Blues to the Premier League title in his debut campaign in England.
However, the Blues are yet to add any new signings to their squad this summer despite the west London side preparing for a return to the Champions League next season.
