Antonio Conte is looking to sign as many as three more players for his Stamford Bridge revolution.

The new Chelsea manager was unveiled to the world’s media in west London on Thursday and presented his vision for the future of the west London club.

Conte has been tasked with rebuilding the side that fell apart under Jose Mourinho last season and saw the club flirt with relegation from the Premier League.

It was Chelsea’s worst domestic performance since Roman Abramovich took control of the club in 2003 and leaves the Blues without European football next term.

Billionaire owner Abramovich is looking to pump more of his millions into SW6 to try and revive the fortunes of his side.

He trusts Conte to spend his cash wisely and has already sanction the £33million purchase of Marseille striker Michy Batshuayi.

Chelsea are conscious of the spending power of Manchester United as Mourinho’s new club look to rival the Blues for a Champions League spot.

Mourinho has taken Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Henrikh Mkhitaryan and Eric Bailly and is plotting a £100million splurge on France midfielder Paul Pogba.

Conte has made a bid for Leicester City star N’Golo Kante while another striker and a top-class centre-half are also high on his summer shopping list.

He was reluctant to discuss names in his media briefing but did outline the scale of his recruitment drive as Abramovich prepares to hand him significant funds.

He said: “We are talking with the club and we know that this club - the team - needs to reinforce.

“I am sure that in the coming days we can reach our target to reinforce the team to go closer to the other teams that now seem to stay higher in the table compared to Chelsea.

“Leicester must give us a great example. You can have the best talent, the best champions. But you must also have a good spirit in your team, a team with good organisation and good players.

“If you have all of those things you can win. You can reach your target.

"I am also sure that soon we will buy maybe one, two or three players. Players that can reinforce us for the season as it will be very, very tough.

“We must take a player who can adapt to our idea of football, to our philosophy.

“It's not right to say the names, no, because these players are now at other teams.

“I don't like that other managers or other clubs speak about my players. I don't like to speak the same.”

Conte and his Chelsea squad are jetting out to Austria later today for a week-long training camp before embarking on a tour of the United States.
