Chelsea's Chief Executive Ron Gourlay has said that the club are not finished with adding to the squad, as they are keen on two more players. Chelsea have been going on a spending spree in the summer after they have signed six attacking players already.

The total value of the summer spending has exceeded the £ 60 million mark, but it is thought that they are willing to break the £ 100 million mark with the addition of two more players. Even though Ron Gourlay failed to disclose the names of the players, he has said that fans can expect two more signings before the end of the transfer window.

Chelsea lifted the Champions League title last season. It has been the holy Grail of the owner Roman Abramovich ever since he took over the club in 2004. It was thought that Roman Abramovich could be decreasing his spending within the club after having achieved his dream. However, it has been the opposite of the thoughts after Chelsea have been extremely active in the transfer window for the first time since the early days of the Abramovich era. A number of new players have arrived at the club, while the old names like Didier Drogba and Salomon Kalou have departed.

"If the right players become available at the right time we will sign them. We've done that and we are still continuing to look at one or two positions and we will see how that develops over the next couple of weeks. While we ended with a very strong season, it was clear that there were some areas where we did have to strengthen, so we knew we were always going to have to do that," said the chief executive of the club Ron Gourlay. Eden Hazard and Oscar have been the standout signings.
