Top players Chelsea will sign in January 2020
Another season for the Blues where the balance in the team is not quite alright; another season where Eden Hazard might leave at the end of it and most importantly it is another season with a new manager demanding players of his type and the board refusing to accept his demands.
Top 5 players Chelsea could sign in January
Things are all but a little too familiar at Chelsea with the club unable to mount a sustainable model despite a complicated business structure at the club. The recruitment, youth system and scouting is all commanded by Roman Abramovich’s second in command, Marina Granovskaia.
In terms of business, she has achieved results with the club revenues finally crossing the green mark of profit last year but the model hardly seems stable, despite what she might want us to believe.
Players above 30 not given more than one year extension on their contracts may sound smart but footballers are individuals. Certainly the extent of Giggs’ career, or the genius of Pirlo was not realised until their late 30s. The biggest eye opener for Chelsea for Drogba’s return at 36 to guide the Blues to a league title.
Then there is the unstable youth system which has seen close to 40 players loaned out could also spell doom if UEFA’s new rule of having no more than 8 loaned players comes into effect next season.
The final reason for instability could be the continuous shuffle of the manager; did the Chelsea board not know Conte and Sarri will not be able to work with similar players?
Why then are they so reluctant to hand tools to an engineer who has been hired to craft a winning team. In an ideal world, we would have the Chelsea board not roll over backwards but at least be a little more open-minded to their manager’s needs to produce a winning team rather than their desire to fantastic business over the commodity they call a footballer.
If things did go well; let us think of 5 players who we believe could be ideal to make Chelsea a threat in Europe again.
5. Players Chelsea could sign in January: Ben Chilwell
Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell would be a brilliant signing for the club. The Leicester full-back is a speed machine currently thriving in Brendan Rodgers’ side at the King Power Stadium, as well as nailing down his spot in the senior England team.
With Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso failing to nail down the left-back spot in the Chelsea squad, it’s certainly an area that could be improve in the long-term. Chilwell is a left-back that is brilliant going forward with speed and energy, but on the flip side he is defensively switched on and part of the best back-line in the Premier League right now.
There have been a few reports coming out recently linking Chelsea to a potential move for Real Madrid attacking midfielder Isco. It has even been suggested that the Blues have been offered a chance to sign the 27-year old Spanish international for £44 million. Now the Madrid star has added fuel to that fire by posting an image on his Instagram account of himself and his family seemingly doing some sight seeing in London.
Isco has seen his career stall in La Liga this season and has made just 13 appearances. He has recently worked his way back into Zidane’s team, which may be a huge dent to Chelsea’s hopes of getting him to Stamford Bridge. But should he become available, then the Blues would face a fight to secure his signature.
3. Players Chelsea could sign in January: Nathan Ake
Chelsea re-signing Nathan Ake this month could depend on the future of Marcos Alonso, although Ake is naturally a centre-back. The Dutchman spent six years at Chelsea earlier in his career but made just 17 first-team appearances in four seasons in the senior squad.
2. Timo Werner
RB Leipzig Timo werner ace Werner is high on the list of players Lampard is hopeful of bringing to Stamford Bridge next month. The pacy German international has scored 23 goals in 24 games this season and is also being tracked by Real Madrid.
Throughout the season, Chelsea have sent scouts to a number of games to keep an eye on Werner. The German international can play anywhere across the front three and Lampard is understood to believe his style would suit Chelsea perfectly.
His form has helped Leipzig end 2019 top of the Bundesliga, four points ahead of giants Bayern Munich, and into the last 16 of the Champions League, where they will face Tottenham in the last 16.
1. Jadon Sancho
Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the January transfer window. The English winger is on the Blues’ wish list as Frank Lampard looks at replacements for Willian and Pedro, who are both out of contract at the end of the season. The winger has been heavily linked with a return to England, having started out at Watford before moving to Manchester City in 2015 and is being monitored by the Blues as well as Liverpool and Manchester United.
Born in Camberwell, London, Sancho has spent the past two-and-a-half years in Germany with Dortmund, having signed for the Bundesliga giants in a deal worth around £8million. Lampard has £150m to spend and the club may have to pay more than £120m for Sancho, with Dortmund keen to cash in on one of Europe’s hottest prospects. He winger has recorded an impressive nine goals and nine assists in his opening 15 Bundesliga matches this season.
He could be the perfect long-term replacement for Willian on the right wing, though he can also play on the left. The teenager would provide competition for his childhood mate Callum Hudson-Odoi and ex-teammate Christian Pulisic, who have both struggled for form in recent weeks.
