Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino could be set to continue his summer spending spree, with reports suggesting that he is targeting three more signings after the announcement of Axel Disasi’s arrival.
Disasi, who is set to join Chelsea from Monaco in a £38m deal, is just one of the several signings the club has made this summer. The Blues have already spent a significant amount of money on players like Nicolas Jackson, Christopher Nkunku, and Angelo.
However, Pochettino is not done yet and is reportedly eyeing three more targets. The first is Moises Caicedo, who has been valued at £100m by Brighton. Chelsea had an £80m bid rejected for the Ecuadorian midfielder, but they are determined to secure his services.
In addition to Caicedo, Pochettino is also interested in signing Brighton goalkeeper Robert Sanchez. With Edouard Mendy’s departure, Chelsea are in need of a new goalkeeper to provide competition for Kepa Arrizabalaga. Sanchez is available for the right price, but negotiations between the two clubs are said to be ongoing.
The third potential signing that could take Chelsea’s spending to £159m is Dusan Vlahovic. Juventus are reportedly keen on including the striker in a swap deal for Romelu Lukaku. However, the Italian giants are demanding at least £40m in addition to Lukaku.
If Pochettino manages to secure all three signings, Chelsea will need to offload several players to balance the squad. The Argentine manager has already expressed his concerns about the size of the squad and is keen to trim it down before the end of the transfer window.
