Chelsea Manager Conte Keen For Five January Signings

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte is reportedly eyeing a January swoop for Brazilian duo Alex Sandro and Lucas - as well as a number of former summer targets the club missed out on - when the transfer window re-opens in the new year.
According to the Daily Mail, the Italian is eyeing a number of recruits across the park with the former Italy and Juventus boss having told the Blues hierarchy they risk being left in English Premier League leaders Manchester City's dust without significant investment in the winter window.

Top of the 48-year-old's list could be a return for former player Alex Sandro from Juve.

Having been linked with a move for the Brazilian international for most of last summer, a switch failed to materialise for the versatile left wing-back.

Ross Barkley is also back on the club's radar following interest in the final weeks before August's deadline day.

The Englishman however is yet to play this season for struggling Everton due to injury, so a move remains to be seen.

Other moves mooted for Chelsea include interest in Lyon's French defender Mouctar Diakhaby and Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke.
