Kalidou Koulibaly to Chelsea: Antonio Conte finally speaks out on interest for Napoli defender


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has confirmed that he is in constant touch with the club to understand how his squad can be strengthened this month.

The Blues kicked off their Premier League campaign in style as they battled past West Ham United at Stamford Bridge on Monday night.

They are expected to sign at least one more players this month but the 47-year-old admits it is not easy to find the right player at the right price.

"It's important to have contact every day with the club," he told reporters.

"The market is very crazy, the club know my ideas and it's important to find the right solution to improve this team, not to buy for the sake of it.

"We are waiting for the right solution but I'm very happy to have these players because every day they show me a great attitude. There are two weeks and we'll pay attention, if we find the right solution that's fine."

The Italian also refused to deny he is trying to sign Napoli defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

"I prefer not to speak about players of other teams," he told Sky Sport Italy with a smile.

"It would be disrespectful."
