Chelsea legend, Frank Lampard says a renewal signed by Antonio Conte, will be the blues best signing.
Chelsea have been linked with Romelu Lukaku, Bakayoko and Juventus wingback Alex Sandro.
However, Chelsea are pushing to get Conte sign a renewal beyond 2019, after winning the EPL title.
“Antonio would be their most important signing – for me he was their man of the season,” Lampard said in quotes reported by The Sun.
“He took the club from 11th to comfortable champions and that can’t be underestimated.
“I think he’s a huge signing for them. You talk about player of the year, I’m all for giving the players credit but because it was such a dramatic uplift from the year before I think you have to give him huge credit.
“You saw the system change and how he made them play in that formation, it worked well.
“I think he’s a huge signing for them. I have no doubts, I don’t know, but I’m pretty confident he’ll be there and they’ll bring in players to play in the system he wants to play.”
