Posted by

Incoming Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is set to oversee plenty of changes this summer, as speculation continues to link him with various individuals.

While he’ll be hoping to guide the Azzurri past Germany in their quarter-final clash at Euro 2016 on Saturday, it seems as though he’s being kept busy by Chelsea too.

Here’s the latest Chelsea transfer speculation:

Chelsea to win race to sign Batshuayi

Chelsea are set to beat Crystal Palace to the signing of Belgian striker Michy Batshuayi after offering £33.2m for the Marseille man.

Sky Sports even claim that the 22-year-old will be allowed to undergo a medical in France in order to complete his move to the Premier League giants.

Ake back out on loan

Nathan Ake will spend next season out on loan at Bournemouth as he continues to acquire important first-team playing experience.

The 21-year-old spent last season at Watford, and will now hope to continue to develop his game under the watchful eye of Eddie Howe.

Scholar gets handed deal

Malakai Hinckson-Mars has signed a two-year professional contract with Chelsea after impressing since his arrival at the start of the Under-16 season.

The former Barnet man has been praised for his quickness and bright attacking play and is versatile enough to be deployed in various positions.

Giaccherini agent talks up Chelsea switch

The agent of Emanuele Giaccherini has insisted that his client will be ready to join Chelsea if Conte makes a phone call to them after Euro 2016.

Having played an important role for the Italy boss at Euro 2016, he continues to be valued highly by the former Juventus boss and would look to prove his worth after failing to have the desired impact at Sunderland.
