The January transfer window was a quiet one for Chelsea with exit of players like John Mikel Obi, Oscar and Branislav Ivanovic. Nathan Ake was also recalled from his loan spell at Bournemouth.
According to a report by Daily Mail, the summer transfer window would be a very busy one for Chelsea. Southampton’s Virgil van Dijk, Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata and Celtic’s Moussa Dembele will top Conte’s list of transfer targets in the summer.
Daily Mail claim Chelsea believe they are well set to lure Van Dijk from Southampton during the summer as Conte seeks to strengthen the Premier League’s meanest defence.
However, Conte will take a closer look at Kurt Zouma, Nathan Ake and Andreas Christensen before making a decision.
Chelsea will reportedly test Real Madrid’s willingness to hold onto Alvaro Morata by submitting a bid for the striker if Diego Costa leaves in the summer.
According to Daily Mail, Chelsea will also continue the pursuit of Celtic’s Moussa Dembele in the summer.
At least five new signings could arrive at Chelsea in the summer as Conte also seeks to add cover and competition at wingback and in central midfield.
