Antonio Conte

Chelsea are interested in signing Southampton full-back Cedric Soares, according to the Telegraph.

The Telegraph claim that the Premier League champions are keen to bring in three more players before the transfer window slams shut on August 31st.

The first of those, as per the Telegraph, is Juventus’ Alex Sandro. Though it is mentioned in the report that this transfer is unlikely to materialise.

Premier League household names Danny Drinkwater and Virgil Van Dijk are also targets for the Blues, if the Telegraph are to be believed.

Antonio Conte appears to also be after a new right-wing-back. The Telegraph believe that Southampton’s Cedric Soares has emerged as a target, whereas moves for Paris Saint-Germain’s Serge Aurier and Arsenal’s Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain are also being considered.

Soares has established himself as an important figure in both the Saints’ and Portugal’s side. He has the potential to do the same for us was he to arrive. We’ll have to wait and see.
