Chelsea fans here in the Tavern are expecting nothing less than silverware and success in the next campaign after failing to defend their title this season.
The Blues will be desperate to get their hands on the Premier League title next season after putting up a poor title defence, with Manchester City now in control of the trophy. Although, with Antonio Conte’s future currently surrounded with doubt, perhaps Chelsea will be able to steal it back next season under new management.
However, this won’t be the only change that’s made at Stamford Bridge this summer as a number of players will need to be brought in, with surrounding top-flight teams looking to bolster their squads.
So, the Blues will need to bring in a striker and a central defender this summer, as Alvaro Morata continues to be linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, while Gary Cahill is coming towards the end of his career and David Luiz looks to be heading for the exits.
So without further ado, Chelsea must complete these TWO transfer deals before the end of June…
Chelsea struggled to get the best out of Alvaro Morata and Olivier Giroud this season, so moving for Mauro Icardi would be a very smart move, as the Argentine can always guarantee goals at the pinnacle of the attack.
Encouragingly, the Inter Milan striker managed to bag himself a whopping 29 goals in 36 appearances for the Italian side, so it’s clear to see that the 25-year-old knows how to find the back of the net, having established himself as one of the world’s deadliest strikers.
Therefore, if Chelsea can manage to land the World Cup reject this summer, they may be able to secure the Premier League title next season.
The Newcastle United captain established himself as one of the best defenders in English football this season, with many of our local residents wanting to see him at Stamford Bridge this summer.
If he joins, he will likely be partnering Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger at the back as part of a very strong Chelsea back line.
The central defender is dynamic in the air and fast when it comes down to one-on-one battles. And, at 24 years of age, he has plenty of time to progress with his whole career still ahead of him, so the Blues will guarantee themselves a long-term replacement for Gary Cahill if they manage to land him.Like what the TT have on offer?
