Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is planning to finance a huge spending spree at the club in the summer transfer window. The Blues are in advanced negotiations with Italy national manager Antonio Conte, and a deal is expected to be concluded this week.
The former Juventus manager will be handed a transfer kitty of £130million upon his arrival at Stamford Bridge. The Blues want to sign at least four key players this transfer window.
The Sun claims that Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo has been scouting Bayern Munich midfielder Arturo Vidal and was present at the Champions League between Juventus and Bayern Munich.
The Chilean international is one of Chelsea’s top transfer priorities this season. The West London club will also reignite their interest in Everton defender John Stones after the season. They previously failed in their attempt to sign the defender in the previous summer transfer window.
The Blues are confident that a bid of £40 million will be enough to land the England international in summer. The report also claims that Belgian star Eden Hazard might leave Stamford Bridge in the summer. He is valued at £80million by Chelsea. Real Madrid and PSG are said to be interested in the player.
