Antonio Conte is on collision course with Chelsea’s money men over the club’s January transfer targets. And the Blues boss will bluntly tell his top brass: Splash out when the window opens, or risk ending the season potless. The Italian coach has made clear he needs reinforcements in the New Year to come to the rescue of a threadbare squad he suggests has just 17-18 senior pros. In particular, Conte is desperate for a striker, with Chelsea’s lack of options painfully exposed at Everton, where his side dominated the game, but without suspended Alvaro Morata, embarrassingly failed to find the net.
