Conte wants these three attackers in January

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is determined to strengthen his attacking options in January, and has told his club he is interested in signing Leon Bailey, Ross Barkley and Thomas Lemar.

According to a report in the London Evening Standard today, The Blues will face disappointment in their long-time pursuit of 20-year-old Jamaican international Bailey, as his club Bayer Leverkusen are refusing to sell their prized asset.

Conte is also a big admirer of Monaco’s hugely talented 22-year-old Lemar, although Chelsea will face serious competition from Arsenal and Liverpool who both made bids for him during the summer transfer window.

The Stamford Bridge club are also expected to rekindle their interest in Everton playmaker Barkley, who they came close to signing on transfer deadline day.
