Chelsea’s Conte wants at least one world class defender signing this January

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is reportedly keen on signing at least one central defender as he seeks to strengthen his squad in the January transfer window.

Chelsea's Conte wants at least one world class CB signing this January

The Blues are on a fine run of form at the moment, but missed out on a number of their top defensive targets during the summer, leading to a surprise deadline day move to re-sign David Luiz from Paris Saint-Germain.

While the Brazilian has largely impressed on his return to Chelsea, Conte is understandably keen to look to the future and replace ageing figures such as John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic, who have featured less regularly this season.

According to Squawka, Chelsea are looking at big names such as Juventus’ Leonardo Bonucci, AC Milan’s Alessio Romagnoli and Roma’s Antonio Rudiger, all of whom were also on the club’s radar in pre-season.

It remains to be seen if these teams can be persuaded to part with important players in the middle of the season, but Chelsea will hope to free up funds by offloading their highest earner Cesc Fabregas, who is no longer a starter under Conte.
