After a busy summer of incoming transfers, Chelsea's Mauricio Pochettino has said the club still needs to add two more signings to the nine new faces at the club this window

Chelsea’s Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that the club will try to sign at least two more players this summer in order to compete against the best teams in the Premier League. 

Chelsea looking for more signings

The Blues have already splurged €401.1 million on nine signings this summer, but the Chelsea boss believes that improvements can still be made to the squad with a number of signings.

Ahead of Chelsea’s encounter against Luton on Friday, Pochettino attended a pre-match press conference where he spoke of the Blues’ activity in the market as well as the recent spate of injuries suffered. 

The Argentine coach said, "We need at least one keeper. We have very talented young keepers but they need time. We need more, and then we were talking about one offensive player, the right profile.”

Pochettino also noted that the club were not just looking to sign players just for the purpose of signing bodies but would be looking to recruit players with the right profile for the club.

"If we can add the right profile, yes, but not to bring players so we can add one more. We don't want to stop the evolution of some young guys, Broja, Nkunku. Working hard but not to take a decision because we need someone. These two areas we maybe need some players.

"We are trying to find the right profile. The most important is the profile of the player we need to add to the squad so after it won't be a problem and they can be compatible. That is why it is not easy but yes, we are trying to do something.” 

Chelsea are already in talks to sign goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic and have also been linked with Lyon’s Bradley Bracola in attack.
