The Chelsea fans in and around the Transfer Tavern are hoping that the managerial situation is soon resolved so he and his staff can focus on building a strong team capable of at least challenging for the top four positions.
Chelsea missed out on the Champions League positions last season, having the season before won the Premier League. It’s been a rollercoaster time in charge for Antonio Conte but even with the new Premier League season edging closer every day, the Italians future is still far from certain at Chelsea. Regardless of the managerial situation though, Chelsea have to recruit Aleksandr Golovin, who is valued at £16.2 million on Transfermarkt.
The Russian playmaker has shown once again why he has to be a player that the top teams consider, after impressing massively for his country at the World Cup. His wonderful delivery and creativity has already mustered up a goal and two assists, statistics he will look to build on as the tournament progresses. Golovin, who is currently of CSKA Moscow, enjoyed a wonderful season at club level as well, scoring 7 goals and assisting 6 for his team-mates.
Chelsea looked a side out of options as the season drew to a close just around a month ago and the creativity of 22-year-old Aleksandr Golovin could inspire the Blues to be a much bigger force next season. The Russian man can play out on the left or alternatively down the middle as an attacking midfielder, either position would definitely improve Chelsea as a squad next season.
