Antonio Conte’s Chelsea may be flying high at the top of the Premier League, five points clear of its nearest competitor, Liverpool, but the Italian will not rest on this cushion.
Nathan Ake, who was on loan at Bournemouth, has been recalled and now, according to The Times, Conte is keen to sign two other defensive figures.
Antonio is seen by Conte as a potential right wing-back, having brought in his 3-4-3 formation at Stamford Bridge this season.
On the left side, Cologne’s Jonas Hector, who is a first-choice for the German national team is top of the Italian’s list of targets.
The transfer window closes on January 31.
