Chelsea is set to back Coach Antonio Conte with a budget of £250 million in a bid to reinforce the team ahead of the new season.

After capturing Alvaro Morata and David Rudiger, it seems Chelsea ain’t done with fortifying their team with a whole of target players on their radar.

Lazio and Italian Midfielder Antonio Candreva, Southampton captain Dirk Van Dijk, Juventus left back Alex Sandro and Swansea striker Fernando Llorente are all possible targets.

Of the quartet, Sandro is top on the list and Chelsea are optimistic about a £60m deal for the Brazilian.

The Londoners will step up efforts to reach an agreement for Candreva, while Llorente is seen as a realistic option to boost Conte’s depleted attack.

Van Dijk, who continues to be linked with Liverpool, is reported to be the lowest priority, but Chelsea are continuing to monitor his situation and could make a bid before the window closes.
