New Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri will be looking forward to getting down to business in the coming weeks as he takes over the reins from Antonio Conte at Stamford Bridge.
The Italian was a big success for Napoli previously, and he will be hoping to bring that success with him to the Bridge as the Blues look to restore their place as Champions League regulars and title contenders.
Indeed it was only two seasons ago that we saw Chelsea romp to Premier League success, and the squad is not all that different to the team that lifted the trophy. However, with some of their top stars drawing interest from some of the big hitters in Europe and some of that title winning team showing signs of age, new players could well be on the horizon.
With that in mind, we here at the Transfer Tavern thinks Sarri and Chelsea need to be making some new additions to the squad, and one such player we think would be a superb addition is £40.5m-rated Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey.
The flying Jamaican teenager has been hugely impressive for the German side over the last 12 months and has shot himself into the limelight with some scintillating performances in the Bundesliga.
With Chelsea likely to be coming under pressure to sell star man Eden Hazard, signing someone like Bailey would be a shrewd move in terms of replacing the Belgian.
Bailey has searing pace, is creative, and chips in with his fair share of goals too. While not quite at Hazard’s level, the chance for development is there, and he would surely be a superb long term signing for the Blues.
Chelsea fans, what do you think? Good signing? Let us know in the comments!
