Chelsea manager Antonio Conte

Chelsea are expected to be very much active in the summer transfer window despite being on the verge of winning the Premier League title this season. Part of the reason is the significantly smaller squad which Antonio Conte has had to work with. However, the Italian has had no troubles with regards to meeting the requirements of the campaign, as Chelsea have not had Champions League football to negotiate. Next season will be different with the club making a return to the group stages of the European competition. This calls for a much bigger squad, and former Liverpool legend Stan Collymore has identified the Tottenham right back as one of the potential names to improve Chelsea. He wrote on his Daily Mirror Column;

“Conte’s top addition could be Kyle Walker, who is on the market after a fall-out with the decision-makers at Spurs. Rumour has it that he fancies a move back up north but if I was in charge at Stamford Bridge I’d be moving heaven and earth to sign him.”

Collymore says that Kyle Walker should be a target for Chelsea. There has been a lot of speculation about the 26-year-old in recent weeks after being left out of the starting line-up against Chelsea in the FA Cup semi-final and against Arsenal in the latest North London derby. Even though he has since been recalled to the first-team, there is certainly interest on the part of Walker to make a move in the summer. Manager Mauricio Pochettino has not been left impressed by the player’s head being turned at the worst possible time.

Despite suffering a 1-0 defeat against West Ham, Pochettino is unlikely to give up on the title unless it is mathematically impossible. Walker has been a key part of the title challenge, especially after the switch to the back three formation. Walker has been used as an offensive wing-back to huge success. While he may not have scored any goals this season, Walker has contributed five assists and his attacking presence has also resulted in the opposition being passed back.

Apart from Walker, Collymore believes that Chelsea should also be looking at Luke Shaw and Romelu Lukaku as potential transfer targets in the summer.
