Potential consequences of Chelsea’s swoop for Krzysztof Piatek

Potential consequences of Chelsea’s swoop for Krzysztof Piatek

Chelsea are one of three teams still unbeaten in the Premier League and that statistic shows exactly why they can’t be ruled out as title contenders.

Compared to Man City and Liverpool though, it could be argued that Chelsea have inferior squad quality and depth which could play a big part in how successful they’re this season.

With the transfer window already just a few months away, reports in Italy via The Sun are reporting that Chelsea are one of many teams looking into the possibility of signing Genoa’s most clinical forward Krzysztof Piatek.

A completely unknown striker before the summer has burst onto the scene in the Serie A, scoring nine goals in just seven games, as well as netting a further four in the cup.

By signing such an in-form player, what potential consequences could this have for the Chelsea team…

Morata finally loses his place in the team

This could be met to huge relief but because of Piatek’s incredible form, Alvaro Morata would have to step aside to make way for the Polish international.

Morata has endured a rollercoaster time at Stamford Bridge and although picking up a bit of form recently, the way Piatek is playing would ensure that the Spaniard is sidelined instead.

Sarri can rely upon an in-form striker

Many believed it would take time for Mauricio Sarri to get used to life in England but his Chelsea team look fresh and ready to cause problems this season.

Recruiting Piatek would only allow his Blues team to improve and with the assistance of the likes of Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro supporting the 23-year-old, he could be the difference between silverware and nothing this season.
