Chelsea’s new manager Antonio Conte has demanded five more players in this summer transfer window following talks with Roman Abramovich, Mariana Granovskaia, and Michael Emenalo, according to latest reports.

The Italian boss is believed to have had a heated discussion with Blues hierarchy in a two-hour meeting, and believes more signings are needed for Chelsea to win the Premier League title.

The Blues finished 10th last season after a dismal run under Jose Mourinho and then caretaker manager Guus Hiddink, and Conte is desperate to avoid a repeat this term.

Despite already bringing in two exciting signings in Michy Batshuayi and N’Golo Kante, the former Juventus boss is still interested on further buys all over the pitch.

According to Daily Mirror, AS Roma defensive midfielder Radja Nainggolan remains a potential target, as does Everton striker Romelu Lukaku and Real Madrid frontman Alvaro Morata.

Chelsea have been linked with all three players for much of the summer, but, just like last year, have struggled to land their top targets.

Chelsea have reportedly made a £67million bid for Real Madrid attacker Alvaro Morata and it turns out to be the third one.

Mourinho was frustrated before the start of last season as the west Londoners roped in some disappointing players such as Radamel Falcao and Papy Djilobodji after missing out on big names such as Paul Pogba and John Stones.

It now remains to be seen if Conte can ultimately kick Chelsea’s main transfer chiefs into gear to sign the players he wants before the end of this year’s transfer window.
