Chelsea Transfer Roundup: Conte Close To Signing His Former Player From Juventu, Major Rumors Involving Diego Costa And More

Chelsea has a dismal season this time around and incoming boss Antonio Conte has a huge task in his hand of re-building the squad into a team that would be the challengers to the title next season. With this in mind the Blues are looking to make many changes into the squad.

According to the Squawka, the Blues are looking to sign Kwadwo Asamoah from Juventus and are ready to table a bid of €30m for the midfielder. The 27 year old player is known for his versatility, as he can play as a central midfielder, a winger and a left-back.

Furthermore, Atletico Madrid are still looking to sign Diego Costa in the summer. Costa spent two seasons in his career at Atletico and was the part of the team that won the La Liga title in 2014. However, he has been inconsistent in 2015/2016 season at the Stamford Bridge. Costa Had a wonderful start to his Chelsea career where he helped his side to lift the Premier League Trophy in 2014-15 season, but failed to replicate the form in the season that followed.

Alexandre Pato is set to return to the Corinthians, after spending the second half of the last season at the Stamford Bridge having featured in just two Premier League matches for the Blues. And it is also reported that he would cost £8.5 m to Chelsea if they want to sign him permanently this summer.
