Antonio Conte opens up on new signings and it's bad news for Chelsea fans


Chelsea manager Antonio Conte hints he might not make any more signings as the transfer window edges to its conclusion.

The Italian made it clear on Thursday that he wants to add new players to his squad but has now revealed that he is not comfortable with the fees clubs are asking for the players he is interested in.

The Blues signed Michy Batshuayi and N'Golo Kante so far this summer but are still searching for a new defender.

They have failed in their attempts to sign Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly after the Partenopei made it clear that the Senegalese is not for sale.

"In this moment it's very difficult to buy," Conte told the club's official website.

"It's possible to be asked for £55 million for a player of medium quality. It's incredible. For this reason I said it's a crazy, crazy market. It's very difficult to do the market with this price and this condition.

"I am not comfortable. I don't like to pay a lot of money. The money is not mine but I don't like it all the same. I don't find it right.

"We must be patient. It's a real situation and we must leave this situation in the right way, for me."
