Chelsea legend Pat Nevin believes more players are needed at Chelsea but he has urged the club not to panic buy.
“In short, there are options but more bodies are needed and there is no doubt whatsoever the club know this and are trying to do something about it. The most important thing is not to push any panic buttons,” Nevin wrote in Chelsea’s official website.
“Act in haste and repent at leisure is an old saying which is certainly true, and remember, mistakes in football buying tend to be incredibly expensive mistakes.
“Having bought players before in a previous life as a chief executive I know it is not easy. You might know exactly who you want, but the player might not want to come, his club might not want to sell, they definitely will not value him at the same value as you do and most likely one or two other clubs will be sniffing around as well.
“It is a game of brinkmanship, or a whole bunch of games of brinkmanship going on at the same time. Remember, you will be sorting out viable back-ups in case your first choice doesn’t happen and you will be doing that on three fronts at the same time in three different positions.”
