Chelsea manager Antonio Conte has urged the club to sign a new defender, with his squad short of options.
Chelsea claimed thier second win on Saturday coming from behind to beat Watford 1-2.
But afterwards Antonio Conte highlighted the fact he only has five senior defenders, four of which played in the game, and expressed concern at the current “crazy” transfer window that so many clubs are finding a problem.
“If you look now at our squad, we have only five defenders – four that started today and an academy player Ola Aina.
“Ola is very good – he has great potential – but with any young player you must work to put them in the first team. Sure, he has a good future
“If one defender is injured or banned, then we are in trouble, but the club and me we know this and we are talking every day to improve the squad.”
