Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has drawn up a long and ambitious shopping list for the January market.
The Daily Mail says Chelsea have eyes on a number of January targets and Conte is keen to strengthen after being left disappointed by their summer business.
Lyon defender Mouctar Diakhaby, Everton midfielder Ross Barkley, Juventus fullback Alex Sandro, PSG winger Lucas Moura and Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke are all under consideration ahead of the transfer window opening in the New Year.
Just this week, Conte declared: “Manchester City’s path is incredible, no? City in this season is a strong team, also last season, City was a fantastic team.
“Then, after the transfer market, they bought their first targets and then they have improved a lot.
“They can do this also in January maybe, in the future.
“For this reason we must be worried because if we want to compete with Manchester City we have to work and then make the best decisions in the transfer market.”
