Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has hinted that there will be more signings in the coming weeks, with Willy Caballero, Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata signed already.

According to English publication the Daily Express, Antonio Conte is expected to keep his famous 3-4-3 formation which worked so well previous year and which ultimately won them the 2016/17 EPL title.

The Belgium global joined Chelsea from Marseille for £33.1m a year ago, but was rarely in the first XI.

"This season the target is the same but it won't be easy, because you can see Man City, Man United, the other teams as well are trying to reinforce and we are changing a lot. I can want this, but if I'm alone it's very hard to do this".

"My daughter is at an age when it's very important to see her grow, to stay every day with her, and also with my wife, because she would be jealous for this".

The west London outfit said on Wednesday they had agreed a deal to sign the 24-year-old who has now passed his medical and will join the squad on their pre-season tour of Asia.

CHELSEA playmaker Pedro will leave the club's preseason tour and return to England after suffering a concussion during its 3-0 win over English Premier League rival Arsenal in Beijing on Saturday.

Chelsea technical director Michael Emenalo said Morata can make a huge impact domestically as well as in the Champions League. For me the striker is very important, he is a point of reference.

Conte admits he would have been happy for the defender to stay at the club but accepted his desire was to play regular first-team football. I repeat, we are a great club but we are in a moment where we can't make a mistake because it's very risky. "But I respected his choice".

Earlier Friday, Chelsea coach Antonio Conte marvelled at the "crazy" transfer fees demanded for players, though he praised Morata as a young but experienced striker with a bright future.

"After one year he is working very well and he is improving". I know what he wants from me'.
