Former Chelsea striker Tommy Langley feels Antonio Conte is the kind of manager who has the ability to attract top talent to Stamford Bridge, especially from his native Italy.
Despite their 13-game winning run in the league coming to an end at Tottenham on Wednesday night, Chelsea remain favourites to lift the Premier League at the end of the season.
Conte has transformed the Blues side, which looked rudderless last season and finished tenth in the league, and has taken them back to the summit of the Premier League.
The Chelsea boss was busy in the summer transfer window and has indicated that he would like to bring in a few fresh faces in January too if he can get the kind of player he wants.
And Langley is convinced that Conte has the ability to attract top talent to Stamford Bridge, especially from Italy where he earned his name and fame as a player and as a manager at Juventus.
The former Blue told Chelsea TV: “I think the bodies in Italy will want to come and play for him.
“I think he is the sort of guy you want to play for.”
Chelsea have cash to burn after receiving a hefty fee from Oscar’s sale to Chinese Super League side Shanghai SIPG this winter.
