ANTONIO CONTE is planning a last minute spending spree which could cost him as much as £200 million before the transfer window closes next week. Conte has got his sights on five new signings as he looks to mount a successful defence of the Premier League crown they won in his first season in charge. The fiery Italian takes his side to Wembley today to face Spurs after they lost their opening game against Burnley at Stamford Bridge last weekend. Conte has got his sights on the Southampton defensive trio Virgil van Dijk, Cedric Soares and Ryan Bertrand - who started his career at Stamford Bridge. The trio could cost as much as £150 million but face competition from Liverpool for van Dijk and Bertrand while Soares is believed to also interest Spurs.
