Stamford Bridge side look to further improve squad.
CHELSEA have not finished spending yet, according to chief executive Ron Gourlay.
They have already splashed out nearly £65m since last season, bringing in Eden Hazard, Oscar, Marko Marin and Eden’s brother Thorgan.
But the club are now in negotiations to make three more additions.
“It was clear there were areas where we had to strengthen if the right players became available,” said Gourley.
“We’ve done that and are still looking at one or two positions.”

The Daily Express believes that Chelsea will launch a £32m bid for Napoli forward Edinson Cavani, a player who the club went up against in European competition last term and a player who has been in a rich vein of form over the past two seasons.
Perhaps Roberto Di Matteo is looking to find a replacement for Didier Drogba whilst also not being all too sure of how £50m man Fernando Torres will fare in the coming campaign.
The Uruguayan international has racked up 66 goals over the past two seasons and may well be keen on a move to Stamford Bridge, not least because his Serie A side failed to clinch a Champions League berth and have also offloaded one of his striking team-mates, Ezeqiuel Lavezzi, to PSG.
