Chelsea have been linked with several defenders this January including Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk who is valued at £50 million.
Antonio Conte revealed on Friday during his press conference that he doesn’t need a new defender at this time.

This definitely makes sense with Kurt Zouma back from injury and ready to play again plus John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic providing cover.
With players like Andreas Christensen and Nathan Ake impressing on loan, and hoping to join the first team next season, it’s probably the right decision at this time.
Do you support Conte’s decision not to sign a defender this January?
