Antonio Conte: Chelsea gaffer handed massive summer transfer kitty

Chelsea are set to spend big in the summer, after bringing in no new faces this January window.

The Daily Mirror are reporting that Antoine Conte is set to be given a massive transfer kitty to secure the targets he wants.


Target list

Topping his £100 million target list is Celtic’s Moussa Dembele and Real Madrid’s Alvaro Morata; with the possibility of having to replace a disillusioned Diego Costa, Conte will be given resource to secure a natural finisher.

Dembele and Morata both represent this desire.

Dembele at aged 20 will be available for around £40 million, having set the Scottish Premier League on fire this season.

A move for Dembele looks likely, as Conte hopes to build a future at Stamford Bridge.

Conte is also hoping to pair him alongside Morata who is becoming increasingly concerned with his starting place at Madrid.


Southampton star on his radar

Further to this, the Italian is also keen on signing Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk.

The defender has been a target for a number of Premier League clubs, but Chelsea are hoping that the allure of Champions League football will bring him to Stamford Bridge.
