Is this why Antonio Conte is reportedly growing frustrated with the lack of transfer activity?
Is this what the Premier League champions are going to take to the stage in against Burnley on the opening day?

In our opinion, it’s gorgeous, and Romelu Lukaku, Tiemoue Bakayoko and the rest will look fantastic in it. Speaking of which, why have neither of the aforementioned been confirmed as Chelsea players yet?
Well, there is a theory going around on social media that Chelsea are waiting until our kit deal with Nike officially begins on July 1st to announce our newest arrivals. Dan Levene, who tends to be pretty clued up when it comes to anything Chelsea related, has hinted that theory may well be accurate.
Quite a bit of truth.
