Chelsea summer transfer targets

This means that Chelsea will likely miss out on the Champions League next season due to not reaching the Top four.
Top 5 Chelsea Transfer Targets this summer in 2019
So with a transfer ban looming, what are Chelsea going to do about going back to winning ways?
Well Chelsea will need to hire a new manager if Sarri is sacked. But the Blues should also sign better players. So, with that in mind- who will be the Chelsea Transfer Targets this summer? Well you’re going to find out.
5. Alessandro Florenzi is one of the top Chelsea summer transfer targets
Alessandro Florenzi should be one of the top summer transfer targets for Chelsea.
The right-back has been in excellent form this season for Roma- although the rest of his team have not been so good. This might prompt him to leave.
Why should Chelsea sign Alessandro Florenzi?
Firstly, Florenzi is a versatile player. He can play as either a right-back or as centre-mid. This is something that Chelsea could use next season.
Secondly, Chelsea’s first team right-back Cesar Azpilicueta is brilliant defensively but not so good in attack. His back-up Davide Zappacosta at Stamford Bridge hasn’t exactly been great at Chelsea so far aside from a miraculous goal which may or may not have been intentional.
So, Chelsea could not only use Florenzi as a first choice or second choice right-back but he could also be used in midfield. Midfield has been a problem area for Chelsea.
4. Kalidou Koulibaly is one of the top Chelsea summer transfer targets
Kalidou Koulibaly is one of the top Chelsea summer transfer targets.
Koulibaly is a strong and big centre-back who plays for Napoli.
Why is Kalidou Koulibaly the top Chelsea transfer target?
The Senegalese centre-back has been heralded as one of the top centre-backs in world football in recent seasons. Furthermore, he has been part of a great Napoli team that tend to play the ball out from the back. This is a quality much needed in the Chelsea defence.
The 27-year-old has played 38 times this season (in all competitions) and has scored three goals. That’s not bad for a defender. He could become of the most expensive Chelsea signings though as the Blues tried to sign him in the past and were quoted £100 million by Napoli according to reports.
3. Koke is one of the top Chelsea transfer targets this summer
Chelsea should sign Koke from Atletico Madrid this summer.
Koke has been one of the best midfielders in the La Liga in recent seasons. Koke has been extremely impressive for the Madrid based outfit.
Why should Chelsea sign Koke?
Well Chelsea needs a creative midfielder to make things happen for the strikers. This season, it has been clear that Jorginhohas not been as influential as he was expected to be and has struggled to make assists while also doing the defensive work that Sarri insists on. But next season, it’s clear that Chelsea need a better midfielder to partner N’Golo Kante and Ross Barkley. Koke would be perfect. He can defend better than Jorginho and he can also create goals.
Koke could easily become one of the best ever Chelsea midfielders if he moved here.
2. Leon Bailey is one of the top Chelsea summer transfer targets
Bayer Leverkusen winger Leon Bailey is the second top summer transfer target for Chelsea.
The Blues need a winger to add more goals and assists next season.
It was clear that Chelsea lacked a creative flair up top this season in 2018/19. Their over-reliance on Eden Hazard meant that opposition teams could just mark the Belgian out of the game. And with Pedro getting old- he’s 31 now- and Willian coming in and out of form.
As much as I like Pedro, I’m sorry to say that the Blues should offload him to make room for this young talent.
Why is Leon Bailey a Chelsea transfer target?
Well first of all, Leon Bailey is only 21-years-old. That is one thing that Chelsea love when signing a player- resale value and the potential to increase in value. The Jamaican-born winger is extremely fast and talented. He can also score goals. Along with CHO and Pulisic, Chelsea will have a bright future in the wing department.
Leon Bailey is basically a younger version of Eden Hazard and signing him would take the immense pressure off of Hazard’s shoulders, who might also leave in the summer.
1. Mauro Icardi is the top Chelsea summer transfer target
Mauro Icardi is the top Chelsea target signing this summer.
The Argentinian has been in fine form this season and has been arguably one of the best strikers in Europe.
Why is Mauro Icardi the Chelsea top summer target?
Icardi has had problems with Inter in Serie A. The striker has been absolutely unstoppable on the field however. On the other hand, Chelsea’s main striker Alvaro Morata was loaned out and his replacement Higuain is yet to come in. This is a major issue for Chelsea this summer. The Blues simply need to get a new striker as we can’t hope for the best with strikers above 30.
Mauro Icardi’s goals and finishing: The lethal finisher
Icardi may cost a fair bit though which is something Chelsea have been rather miserly on lately. But if the club want to start challenging in the Champions League again then they need to sign a striker. Although Icardi will not be cheap. He will likely become the most expensive Chelsea player ever. But, cost aside, Icardi should be the top Chelsea transfer target this summer.
