Chelsea have been very inconsistent this season and their turbulent form suggests exactly that.
Although they still find themselves in fourth position, competition is really heating up and the Blues could soon be overtaken if they’re not careful.
Maurizio Sarri finds himself under immense pressure to deliver but with the possibility of gaining silverware and secure Champions League football, that would surely be considered a job well done for the Italian.
With the squad of players Chelsea have, they know they need to improve to be in with a chance of pushing their domestic rivals further and the best way to do that is again by spending in the summer.
Chelsea’s recruitment in past windows has been somewhat inconsistent but signing Strasbourg’s Kenny Lala could be a decision that proves to be very good.
The French defender, (who is valued at £10.8 million on Transfermarkt) has been in magnificent form this season and that could lead many teams to take an interest in him for next season.
From his right-back position, Lala has provided four goals, eight assists and helped keep five clean sheets.
Statistics like that for a defender do not go unnoticed and Chelsea among many others would surely be interested in acquiring the right-back.
It may be a requirement to sign a right-back for Chelsea in the summer if Davide Zappacosta leaves the club which is a very real possibility, as was touted during the January window.
So, as back-up to Cesar Azpilicueta, Kenny Lala could take over the role of being the Blues’ cup defender or even if he shows the right attitude and performance-levels from this season, could be a regular feature on the team-sheet.
