Chelsea boss Roberto Di Matteo has hinted he may look to strengthen the Blues squad further this summer.

The Stamford Bridge side have already clinched the signings of Eden Hazard and Marko Marin, but Di Matteo insists he could still move in the transfer market if the right player becomes available.

Speaking to the Blues official website, Di Matteo said: "I'm pretty happy with the squad but we'll monitor the market and see what opportunities there are to improve the team. It's not just a question of how much you spend but attracting the right players."

Chelsea have been linked with a number of big names this summer, and following the departure of Didier Drogba, Di Matteo's side have been credited with an interest in several top-class strikers, including Porto's Hulk and Real Madrid's Gonzalo Higuain.

But Di Matteo also revealed he's content with his attacking options, and praised the performances of Fernando Torres and Juan Mata as Spain took home the Euro 2012 trophy.

Torres won the Golden Boot, after three goals in the tournament, and the Spaniard has been tipped to replace the goals once provided by Drogba.

"Didier was an outstanding player for the club who achieved a lot of success, but we have to move on," said the Chelsea manager. "He's not here anymore and the players will rise to the occasion and fill in. It's a team sport, we have Fernando [Torres], [Danny] Sturridge and [Romelu] Lukaku, so we have enough quality."
