Chelsea have identified Alexis Sanchez, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Virgil van Dijk as three of their top summer transfer targets and could splash as much as £200m this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Telegraph is reporting that Antonio Conte is determined to significantly strengthen his squad this summer as he prepares his team for a return to the Champions League next season.

The same article says Chelsea are keen to sign the trio this summer and that Conte is also on the lookout for a new wing-back and back-up goalkeeper.

It also reveals that there is continuing uncertainty about Diego Costa’s future at Chelsea.

Chelsea are currently coming to terms with the disappointment of missing out on a domestic double this season as they ended up losing the FA Cup final 2-1 to Arsenal on Saturday.

However, the Blues can still look back on a successful first season under Conte after they won the Premier League title for the second time in three years.

Despite their title success, Chelsea are being tipped to be one of the Premier League’s biggest spenders this summer and it seems the latest reports in the British media seem to back up that expectation.
