Chelsea Chief: Spending Spree To Continue With Two More Signings

With the summer transfer window in full swing, Football Talk will be keeping you up-to-date with all the latest transfer news throughout the summer. Today, Chelsea confirm their spending spree isn’t over.
Chelsea are set to continue their summer spending spree despite owner Roman Abramovich already splashing out over £60m on new talent, according to the Daily Mail.
The European champions have already signed Eden Hazard, Marko Marin and more recently Brazilian playmaker Oscar for a combined total of more than £60m.
But chief executive Ron Gourlay has fired a warning at their rivals by revealing the clubs spending is set to continue as they look to build a squad capable of challenging for the Premier League as well as defending their champions league trophy.
Speaking after Chelsea’s 1-0 pre-season defeat to AC Mialn, Gourlay is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail:
‘While we ended with a very strong season, it was clear that there were some areas where we did have to strengthen, so we knew we were always going to have to do that.
‘If the right players become available at the right time we will sign them. We’ve done that and we are still continuing to look at one or two positions and we will see how that develops over the next couple of weeks.’
A striker remains the priority for manager Roberto Di Matteo, with Edison Cavani and Radamel Falcao among the players being considered good enough to fill the boots of the departed Dider Drogba.
The other position the Italian would like to strengthen is right back, after Jose Bosingwa left the club at the end of last season and question marks remain over the future of Paulo Ferrira.
