Chelsea boss Antonio Conte admits he is keen to make more additions to his squad before the close of the transfer window, but says he is willing play the waiting game, according to Sky Sports.

The Italian insists the Blues need to wait for the "right solutions" in the transfer market, which has already seen them make moves for Leicester City's N'Golo Kante and Marseille forward Michy Batshuayi.

But Conte, who enjoyed his first taste of Premier League football in the win over West Ham United last Monday, is still keen on bringing in new recruits before the August 31st deadline, and says the club are already working on some potential deals.

According to Sky Sports, Conte said: "It's very difficult to speak about transfer policy, and about the discussions I face with the club.

"It's important to speak about the players with them at the right moment. Before a game is very difficult.

"We are waiting for the right solutions to improve Chelsea. We need to sign some players because we are now a few players short. We are working together to find the right solution."
