Antonio Conte will surely be looking at signing a few players this month…
The Blues have done fantastically well this season, but their lack of squad depth is clear for all to see.
Conte has largely been limited to using a small group of 13 or 14 players this season, and when you’re looking to compete on all fronts for an entire season – that just simply isn’t good enough.
The importance of domestic competition in the Premier League means that young players are rarely risked, and so spending a bit of money on experienced talent would certainly be a wise move for the Italian boss.
Given his experience in his native Italy, Conte has frequently looked towards Serie A so far, but it might be time for him to look elsewhere. More specifically, he could look towards La Liga – with the Spanish league quickly emerging as one of Europe’s most competitive divisions.
When it comes to positions that need reinforcement, a lack of depth in the middle-of-the-park, with just Fabregas, Kante and Matic available to Conte, means that the midfield could do with an upgrade – with a host of players on offer in La Liga.
With that said, Conte should try and sign these 2 La Liga midfielders in January…
