Chelsea boss Antonio Conte wants two major January signings

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is seeking two major signings this month.

The Times says Conte wants his squad to stick together in the New Year sales with arrivals rather than departures on his mind.

He is keen on bringing in a new left-back and striker this month as he bids to get Chelsea in shape for the second-half of the season.

Conte is said to want a striker to help out Alvaro Morata up top as he goes for glory in 2018.

Michy Batshuayi was signed for £33m in 2016 but has barely had a look-in under the Italian.

He could be allowed to leave in January if a replacement is drafted in.

Chelsea are also light at left-back, with Marcos Alonso the club's only first-team option.
