The Chelsea fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that Antonio Conte will be given the chance to invest in his team this January. The Italian has done very well, given his available resources, this season, but another sizeable chunk of investment could give his team the edge that it needs.
In truth, there is a lack of depth throughout the Chelsea squad, and that does need addressing, but one area that is proving particularly problematic for those in the Transfer Tavern is at left-back.
Marcos Alonso has been a fantastic asset for the Blues throughout his tenure at the club, but a lack of depth beyond the Spaniard will be an issue as Chelsea’s fixture congestion begins to ramp up.
He has been fortunate enough to avoid injury throughout his time in London, but that could change in an instant, and that would leave Chelsea in a bad position. It makes sense, then, for the Blues to target a top class secondary option in an effort to provide more cover.
With that said, Chelsea should sign 1 of these 2 forwards to rival Chelsea’s resident left-back…
