It has been revealed that Antonio Conte will go into the transfer market to sign six players this season, and Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has warned that the Blues must strengthen this summer especially in the wing-back position, if they are to have another good season.
“I’ve said all along they definitely need another wing-back as they get through a lot of work in that role,” Merson told Sky Sports.
“Cesc Fabregas looks like he’s going so they’ll need another midfielder as well.
“I also think Conte needs to bring in another defender.
“I know everybody goes on about how good David Luiz has been but he got found out again in the FA Cup final.
“He had no awareness of the danger for the Aaron Ramsey goal.”
