Chelsea boss Conte plans £200M mega spend on six signings

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte plans to spend £200 million this summer on six signings.

The Independent says Conte has targeted six key areas – with Southampton defender Virgil van Dijk and Real Madrid striker Alvaro Morata his two top priorities.

Conte wants at least one striker, depending on the future of Diego Costa, two centre-backs, another forward to play in the front three, a central midfielder and a back-up goalkeeper to replace Asmir Begovic.

Conte is also still interested in a reunion with Swansea striker Fernando Llorente, but the former Juventus striker will only arrive if Costa leaves.

Napoli star Dries Mertens is also on Chelsea's radar, although the Serie A club do not want to sell.
