Antonio Conte has said Chelsea are looking for new players “every day” but the “crazy” prices being paid has made the process difficult.
The Blues have made two big-money signings this summer with midfielder N’Golo Kante and striker Michy Batshuayi both arriving for over £30m apiece, but there are concerns over the lack of options in defence.
However, Conte suggested that Chelsea are still active in the transfer market and will make more signings before the window closes if the right deals can be made.
“I speak every day with the club and we have a plan,” Conte told a press conference.
“We know that this transfer market is crazy and different but we must be patient to find the right solutions for the team and it is important to speak every day with the club to find the right solution to improve this squad.
“I prefer to talk these topics with the club and have the idea to improve the squad, sure in the future, something can happen.”
