Chelsea will be hoping for a successful January transfer window when it finally rolls round in a few weeks time, and manager Antonio Conte will be keen to add some more quality to his ranks no doubt.
The summer was somewhat frustrating for the Blues manager, who missed out on a few big targets and also saw Man United snatch Romelu Lukaku from under his nose.
However, he moved on and signed Alvaro Morata, who looks a shrewd signing, and our landlord here at the Tavern thinks one or two more players could be on his hitlist in January as he looks to further improve his already excellent Blues squad.
One player he thinks could be a superb addition to ranks at Stamford Bridge is Belgian starlet Youri Tielemans, who has been in brilliant form for Monaco for some time now.
The 20-year-old midfielder is looking like being a world class player in the making, and his quality on the ball in attacking areas is also something to be admired.
While his age might concern Conte in terms of going straight into the first team, he has been a regular for Monaco for some time now, so his ability to adapt and play first team football is something which is hard to bring into question.
Tielemans is a top young player, and a move to Chelsea could well give him that added boost to develop him into a world class midfield player.
