Chelsea look set to back Antonio Conte considerably before the summer transfer window comes to an end.
The Blues have already recruited Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata this summer, but they are not finished there.
As per the Mirror, Chelsea are prepared to allow Conte to spend another £150M on reinforcements, on top of the £129M they note he has already splashed this month.
Sky Sports reporter Kaveh Solhekol believes that he knows who is on Conte’s transfer wish-list, as he sent out the below tweet on Monday night.
Chelsea want to buy another four players this summer. Shortlist includes Alex Sandro, Fernando Llorente, Antonio Candreva & Virgil Van Dijk

If Solhekol’s information is correct, Chelsea would be strengthening at left-wing-back, right-wing-back, centre-back, and in attack.
Fernando Llorente would likely provide back-up for new arrival Morata, but you would assume that the other three would be in contention for starting roles.
Conte looks to be readying his squad to challenge on all fronts next term. Chelsea have learned from the mistakes of the 2015/16 campaign, and are not resting on their laurels.
