Roberto Di Matteo: Is eyeing further recruits for Chelsea this summer but will not name specific targets
Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo has revealed the club's summer spending could continue but will not name any of his potential transfer targets.
The Blues have already been busy in the transfer market this close season, signing Germany midfielder Marko Marin from Werder Bremen and Belgium international Eden Hazard from Lille.
The Blues have also been linked with a big-money move for Porto's Brazilian striker Hulk, as Di Matteo looks to build a side capable of challenging the two Manchester clubs for the Premier League title next season.
The 42-year-old was full of praise for his two new recruits and the impact they could have next season but he remained coy when asked about any further incomings at the Bridge.
"Hazard is a wonderful player, a fantastic player and has achieved a lot at such a young age, winning the Ligue 1 player of the year," said Di Matteo.
"Marin is another talented young player who can play in a variety of positions, which is helpful for the team.
"I'm pretty happy with the team but we will look at the market and if there are any opportunities to improve the team then we will pursue it."
When asked specifically about Hulk, Di Matteo responded: "I am not going to discuss our targets. Every time you say something the price goes up."
Di Matteo also revealed there had as yet been no firm decision on the futures of Florent Malouda and Yossi Benayoun, who have been linked with moves away this summer.
"They are part of the club and I expect everyone to be here at the start of pre-season. We will monitor it and see what happens," he added.
