"I want the team to be on a par with the club's history, which is something I've been lucky enough to feel at every club - there was the same kind of feeling at Inter [Milan] and at Real Madrid".
"Bakayoko is a good signing for us".
Conte has replaced the outgoing Diego Costa with Alvaro Morata, Nemanja Matic with Tiemoue Bakayoko, Asmir Begovic with Willy Caballero, but he still needs at least four more purchases like new centre-half Antonio Rudiger to actually deepen his squad. "They've had an outflux, a lot of players have gone but majority were squad players and young players who probably won't affect the first XI that much. If he doesn't get players in then it wouldn't surprise me if he walked". I think he has good prospects for Chelsea - for now and the future.
"With Costa not involved you have taken away 20 goals and someone has to replicate that", said Wright, who scored 185 goals in 288 games for Arsenal between 1991 and 1998.
"I heard whispers at the back end of last season that he wanted to go and even if the club can not come out and say too much about that, maybe there was an element of that in play here when this deal went through".
