Ray Wilkins: ‘Conte’s Chelsea transfer plans all depend on this player’


Wilko believes the Blues transfer plans will be determined from what happens with striker Diego Costa.

Atletico Madrid had attempted to sign Costa last summer according to reports, and may target him again if he became available

Wilkins, who was a former coach at Stamford Bridge, feels Antonio Conte may be considering possible replacements if Costa leaves.

“They’ll be delighted to be in that Champions League, they would have missed it immensely this season,” Wilkins told Sky Sports.

“It really depends on Diego Costa, to a large degree, who they are going to get in to replace him if he decides to go to China, which has already been mooted this season.

“It will be very interesting, I’m sure Antonio will have a few names up his sleeve that he would like to bring in. Defensively they have spoken about bringing added players in.

“But at this moment in time they just need a few additions to keep themselves bubbling along – they are all young enough and they all look absolutely superb at the moment.”
