Our Chelsea fans here in the Transfer Tavern are eager for their side to get signing players in the window now it is open.
The Blues are certainly the team to beat next season and that makes them a real target as sides will be eager to put one over on them.
That fact, then, combined with their return to playing in the Champions League means they need to bring in some top drawer players and we think it’s time they flex the muscles and get Alexandre Lacazette to sign for their club.
Indeed, with our fans here by the bar thinking that Diego Costa could be off before too long the Blues certainly will need a new world class forward to arrive and Lacazette is the kind of man that would fit their 3-4-3 perfectly.
Indeed, he’s used to playing in a front three thanks to his time in Lyon and his pace and movement would certainly aid Chelsea’s shift to a more pressing style – where Conte evidently sees his side going.
Goals, meanwhile, are not a problem with the Frenchman hitting the net 37 times in all competitions last season – far eclipsing anything the Chelsea players did in 2016/17 meaning he’d surely more than make up for any void left by Costa.
Lacazette, then, would be a superb signing for Chelsea.
He’s got Champions League experience, is perfectly suited to the Blues’ style and scores a lot of goals – Antonio Conte should make a move.
