It could be a very interesting last few days of the month for Chelsea…

The Blues might be flying in the Premier League, but it would appear as though Antonio Conte is far from building his dream squad at Stamford Bridge.

According to A Bola, Chelsea are keen on right-back Nelson Semedo, who is currently playing for Benfica. The impressive full-back has impressed in Portugal as of late, and Antonio Conte has, seemingly, taken note of his fine performances.

Victor Moses has done far better than anyone could have hoped this season, but the Nigerian is quite clearly a square peg in a round hole – and long-term, it seems unlikely that he will continue to man the right flank for the Blues.

Should Semedo make the move, he would certainly be joining a rather impressive back line. With that said, could this be Chelsea’s potential new-look 2017 defence including Semedo?
