Chelsea still working on transfers

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte says the club are doing all they can to bring more players in before the transfer window shuts.

Chelsea have been active in the transfer market, signing striker Alvaro Morata from Real Madrid, plus defender Antonio Rudiger, goalkeeper Willy Caballero and Tiemoue Bakayoko, the midfielder bought from Monaco before Nemanja Matic was sold to rivals Manchester United.

Conte has moaned about the size of his squad ahead of a return to the Champions League although Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had an answer, pointing to Chelsea sending numerous players out on loan.

Conte said: "I'm not looking for sympathy of any coaches for this situation.

"The situation is clear. If the club decide to send on loan players for their development it's because these players are not ready to play for Chelsea."

Conte kept his counsel on Chelsea's transfer business, with the summer window open until August 31.

"My only task is to focus on the pitch," Conte said.

"The club is trying to do their best on the transfer market."
