Antonio Conte will be looking to bolster his squad this summer with the addition of Champions League football next season.
The Chelsea boss has been fortunate this season that the bulk of his squad has remained relatively injury free with the likes of Diego Costa and Eden Hazard missing just four Premier League games between them.
With no European football to contend with this term, Conte's side have often had the luxury of having a week's rest as opposed to their rivals.

Virgil van Dijk – 5/1
Juventus were reportedly the frontrunners for his signature, but Italian outlet Calciomercato claim that Fiorentina will not sell to their rivals, providing Chelsea with a greater chance at securing his services in the summer.
The report claims Fiorentina and Bernardeschi are in discussions over adding a release clause to his contract.
The Italy international reportedly turned down an offer to include an £86million release clause – the same as Torino striker Andrea Belotti.
Chelsea could face competition from Bayern Munich and Inter Milan to sign Bernardeschi.
