Chelsea need to go into the transfer market and add quality to the squad. Inasmuch as we have a good squad, we must confess that our squad is thin and we were very fortunate to go through the whole season without suffering injury crisis, and it might not be so next season.
Already, our star player Eden Hazard is injured and this means we even need extra quality in the team. Chelsea have been linked with Alvaro Morata and Romelu Lukaku, and it beats me why the Blues haven’t made an attempt to sign Borussia Dortmund striker Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.
The Dortmund star has yet again had a wonderful season and it’s surprising that no Premier League team is even linked with him.
Look at his stats in numbers. Even Lukaku and Morata would be jealous of his stats:
Bundesliga appearances – 32
Bundesliga goals – 31
Assists – 2
Total chances created – 26
Shot accuracy – 63%
Champions League appearances – 9
Champions League goals – 7
Aubameyang scored in almost every game he played in and that is extraordinary; Aubameyang is more than just a lethal finisher; he has skill and trickery and is also a pacy forward who can cause the best of defenders all manner of troubles.
Hazard is clearly our most skillful player and is the best when it comes to being one-on-one with a defender, and this isn’t the strength of Diego Costa, while the likes of Pedro and Willian would need a bit of space to drive with the ball.
Chelsea need another star player that will add fear factor and quality to the team, and Aubameyang is just that man. Unfortunately, we haven’t been linked with the Gabon international and PSG seem to be only club showing real interest in him.
If Chelsea must make a statement in the transfer market, a move for Aubameyang will be a good one.
