Reports: Conte To Axe Two Chelsea Stars

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte is reportedly on the verge of axing two first team players from his Blues squad.

10 Signings Who Are Struggling At Their New Clubs

According to the Daily Mail, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic's days are numbered after their displays against Arsenal on Saturday.

The pair have been on the receiving end of most of the blame for the club's 3-0 defeat to the Gunners at the Emirates Stadium, and it seems the Italian boss has also lost his patience with them.

Cahill has already made one costly error this season, when his poor first touch led to a goal for Swansea at the Liberty Stadium two weeks ago, while Ivanovic's form of late has been woeful.

Conte brought in David Luiz and Marcos Alonso in the recent transfer window to beef up his defence, but it is now believed he will be looking for two new centre backs.

It is underrstood that the Italian tactician is keen to bring more homegrown players into his squad, and it has been rumoured that he has his eyes on Burnley's Michael Keane and Middlesbrough's Ben Gibson
