Conte wants more signings

Antonio Conte insists the transfer market is not finished.

The Italian manager was a guest at Sky Sports Premier League show and he believes that Chelsea will add more signings before the end of the close-season.

Chelsea won the English top league in a dominant matter in Conte’s first season in charge of the Blues. However, the manager expects the upcoming 2017-18 campaign to be much more challenging due to the reinforcements a lot of Premier League clubs have brought in during the transfer window.

“Every season, I think it’s right that every great team try to improve their squad, to improve the quality of their team.” Conte said to SkySports.

“For sure the teams you named are very strong (City, United, Arsenal), they have improved a lot and for us, the challenge will be very tough.

“Also I hope to improve our squad, the transfer market is not finished and we want to be competitive and we want to try to fight for the title.

“I think most importantly is my club knows very well which is are priorities and I hope to try to work, to improve our squad, to improve our quality and then to be ready to fight for this season.’

“I repeat this league is not easy, you have to fight against another at least five teams. This league is different than in other countries when you find two teams fighting for the title. Here you find six teams very strong and you must be very prepared to fight very hard,’ the 48-year-old said.”
