Chelsea have been linked with lots of big-name signings this summer but Chelsea legend Frank Lampard believes getting Antonio Conte to sign a new contract would be Chelsea’s biggest signing of the summer.
Conte’s current contract would run out in 2019 and Chelsea have reportedly opened talks with the Italian about extending his contract beyond 2019.
“Antonio would be their most important signing – for me he was their man of the season,” Lampard said as quoted on Daily Mail.
“You talk about player of the year, I’m all for giving the players credit but because it was such a dramatic uplift from the year before I think you have to give him huge credit.
“You saw the system change and how he made them play in that formation, it worked well.
“I think he’s a huge signing for them. I have no doubts, I don’t know but I’m pretty confident he’ll be there and they’ll bring in players to play in the system he wants to play.”
