Sky Sports journalist: Chelsea want four more signings (all transfer targets named)

Posted by

Chelsea have already signed nine players this summer, but the Blues reportedly want four more.

Sky Sports journalist Kaveh Solhekol told his Twitter followers on Monday night that Chelsea were keen to sign another four players this summer.

Kaveh even went as far as naming the four men on Antonio Conte’s wish-list.

Alex Sandro could be an excellent signing if Chelsea are able to prise him away from Juventus. The 26-year-old Brazilian has the potential to upgrade the Blues in the left wing-back position, where Marcos Alonso currently plays.

Antonio Candreva, who is currently on the books at Inter Milan, would give Chelsea options on the other side of the pitch. He too can operate as a wing-back, but positional versatility is a strength of the 30-year-old, who can also function further forward.

Southampton centre-back Virgil van Dijk, 26, would be a welcome addition in the eyes of most Blues fans too, but Fernando Llorente at the age of 32 seems like a strange one, although the Spanish striker did score against Chelsea in an impressive display for Swansea City last season.

Chelsea signings already completed this summer:

Karlo Ziger – NK Zagreb
Nicolas Tie – Poitiers
Billy Gilmour – Rangers
Daishawn Redan – Ajax
Ethan Ampadu – Exeter City
Willy Caballero – Manchester City
Antonio Rüdiger – Roma
Tiemoue Bakayoko – Monaco
Alvaro Morata – Real Madrid
