Central midfield has been a problem area for Chelsea over the last year, and the fans in the Transfer Tavern are hoping that it will be resolved this summer. N’Golo Kante needs a new partner as soon as possible, as the likes of Tiemoue Bakayko and Danny Drinkwater haven’t been good enough lately.
Naturally, then, you’d expect a big signing to come – but we recently made the case for David Luiz moving up the field. The Brazilian has played in midfield before, and the rise of Andreas Christensen has left little room for him in the defence.
It would certainly be a big call to move Luiz, but it’s a move that Chelsea fans would love to see, it seems.
We recently asked them whether Luiz should partner Kante next term, and a whopping 83% of fans responded saying that he should – indicating that the partnership would be very popular with fans.
Kante, obviously, would offer the defensive solidity that a strong midfield needs, and his pace and ability to break-up play is huge for the Blues.
Luiz, meanwhile, would be able to do all of that – but he’d be able to focus on passing too, and all Chelsea fans know how well he can do that.
In truth, the pair seem like a match made in heaven, and so it would be wise to give them a chance.
