Carlo Ancelotti has admitted he wants to bring in two more players, as he looks to close a deal for Ramires and targets Croatian interbational Darijo Srna, according to ESPN.

With the departure of Juliano Belletti having left the club to return to his native Brazil, Ancelotti has been linked with Srna as a replacement.

The Blues have Jose Bosingwa returning from injury and Branislav Ivanovic at right-back plus Paulo Ferreira, who has seen his first team opportunities limited inn recent seasons.

However, with the reported exit of Ricardo Carvalho looming, Ivanovic could be reverted to a more central role and Chelsea will be looking for someone to fill the void and cover for Bosingwa.

Ancelotti told Sportske Novosti: “We have the whole of August to complete deals. The strategy of the club is clear.

“Compared to last season, we have lost Belletti, Ballack and Joe Cole, so we will add three players in these positions. So far, we've brought in [Yossi] Benayoun from Liverpool.”

When quizzed about Srna, he replied:” I understand your curiosity as a journalist, but I must stress that I cannot give you the names of players Chelsea are interested in signing.

“[Although] I don't want to deny that we are tracking an interesting player,” he added.
