Chelsea will look to make two of three key additions during the transfer window, and will start by turning to Atletico Madrid for the second successive summer.

Chelsea Goals and Highlights

With Didier Drogba leaving the club, according to The Guardian, Jose Mourinho has pinpointed Antoine Griezmann as the man he hopes can help the Blues retain their Premier League title, 12 months after putting the same faith in Diego Costa.

One stumbling block to any potential deal however, could be the £43m which The Guardian suggest it would take to bring the 24-year-old to London. But, the campaign the Frenchman has enjoyed would suggest that he would certainly provide value for money. He scored 22 times in the top flight alone, and has proved his ability to play as either a winger or a striker.

And he could be joined by both Asmir Begovic of Stoke and Augsburg’s Baba Rahman, as the champions prepare to lose both Felipe Luis – also a signing from Diego Simeone’s side – and Petr Cech.
