Antonio Conte insists he is worried about the fact he only has four fit defenders for Chelsea’s clash against Burnley at Stamford Bridge this weekend, and could dip back into the transfer market.
Ola Aina limped off in the second half and was replaced by John Terry and Conte, who is hoping to sign another defender before the transfer window closes, is concerned that his resources could be stretched.
“I hope the injury to Aina is not serious because if it is we will only have four defenders for Burnley. I’m a bit worried,” Conte said.
“I’d rather speak with the club about transfers and we stay in contact every day. We are trying to find the right solution to improve this team. It’s right to pay the player in the right way.”
