Chelsea might have agreed terms with former Manchester City goalkeeper Willy Caballero, whom the Blues will sign on a free transfer, but Chelsea boss Antonio Conte still has four names left in his 5-man transfer target shortlist that he wants ahead of the new season.

Monaco midfielder Tiemoue Bakayako is one of the players on the top of the list for Antonio Conte and there are underground reports that Chelsea have agreed to sign the France international but will wait for July 1st before announcing the deal.

Romelu Lukaku is also on Conte’s five-man shortlist of priority targets this summer and reports claim Chelsea have agreed a deal in excess of £150,000-a-week to bring the 24-year-old back to west London, pending an agreement of transfer fee between Chelsea and Everton.

Juventus left-back Alex Sandro is said to be another player on Conte’s shortlist. It is believed Chelsea have agreed terms with the Brazilian and expect Juventus to accept a new transfer fee.

Conte has also earmarked the centre-back position to be strengthened and is interested in Juventus defender Leonardo Bonucci.

Will Conte get all his targets? Time will tell, but for now it’s the silly season window as many rumours filter the press with clubs trying to make the most of what they can get ahead of the new season.

    Romelu Lukaku is not the striker Chelsea need at this moment. Chelsea needs a topmost striker. Diego Costa is far better than Lukaku.

    I totally agree with you
