Antonio Conte: Has a number of problems to solve

Antonio Conte has reportedly held talks with Cesar Azpilicueta and Pedro to stress that they are both in his first-team plans at Chelsea.

According to the Daily Mirror, the Italian sought out the Spanish duo following the last-16 clash at Euro 2016 as he tries to build a Chelsea squad capable of mounting a title challenge this season.

Athletic Bilbao and Manchester United have been linked with Azpilicueta, while Pedro revealed recently that he has held talks with Barcelona.

However, it is thought that Conte wants to keep both at Stamford Bridge for the upcoming campaign and will not entertain any offers for the two right-sided players.
