Chelsea supporters in the Transfer Tavern are excited at the prospect of welcoming new players before the conclusion of the transfer window on Thursday.
Following their shock 3-2 defeat to Burnley on the opening weekend of the Premier League season, normality was restored for Conte’s side with an impressive 2-1 triumph over Tottenham Hotspur at Wembley.
This week the Blues play host to Everton, a team who have been especially active in the transfer window – unlike the champions.
Despite making four notable additions to the first-team squad, 38 players have departed Chelsea this window, either through being released, sold, or loaned. One area of the pitch in which the Blued severely lack depth is at wing-back.
Currently, Chelsea does not have a backup left wing-back or right wing-back at their disposal, and they must act promptly with time running out in the window.
Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain is one name that has been continuously linked with a move to the champions, but our landlord has opted to concentrate on the left-side of the defence.
Porto’s Alex Telles is one player that would be of unequivocal benefit to Antonio Conte.
The Italian’s pursuit of Alex Sandro has been to no avail; now they must focus on alternative options.
The 24-year-old is the epitome of a modern-day wing-back, equally influential while fulfilling his defensive and attacking responsibilities.
His presence would provide Conte with invaluable depth and sufficient competition to propel the standard of his side.
Our landlord believes this would be a terrific signing for the Champions.
