Everton v Chelsea - Premier League
Antonio Conte has been publicly critical of Chelsea's transfer policies.

Chelsea have been going through a tough campaign to say the least following their title-winning exploits last term, as the defending champions aim to secure Champions League qualification. In comparison to the Manchester giants, the Blues have been fairly quiet in the transfer market. Even manager Antonio Conte has - on numerous occasions - complained about the club's transfer policy.

Unhappy with their acquisitions, Conte feels he's dealing with a very thin squad and although his future in west London remains uncertain, the coming months are crucial for Chelsea.

For them to challenge for major honours next term and beyond, the current squad must be reinforced with top-quality acquisitions.

#5 Gianluigi Donnarumma

AC Milan v UC Sampdoria - Serie A
Donnarumma has emerged as the finest goalkeeping talent across Europe

Donnarumma has been dubbed the most exciting prospect in Europe by many critics. The 19-year-old already has over 110 club appearances for Serie A side AC Milan.

The Rossoneri star is considered among the best goalkeepers in the world despite being a teenager and Chelsea, like several European giants, have been linked with the Italy international.

Current first-choice goalkeeper Thibaut Courtois is yet to sign a contract extension with the club and will only have a year left on his existing deal once this current campaign is complete.

The highly-rated Belgian is being courted by La Liga giants Real Madrid, which is likely to leave the Blues with a significant sum of money and a starting spot that could be utilised in their attempts to persuade Gianluigi into departing Italy for.
