We’re now in the time of the season when clubs inject speed in concluding their transfer business. But in reality? Why wait till the rush hour when you could possibly do your business early enough and save yourself the stress. The facts are that late transfer business often lead to panic buys which could possibly have a club buying over-hyped players and misfits. But though most clubs find true value, but late buying comes with its own risks.
With Chelsea having a habit of buying late in the transfer market, here are 4 players that would boost Antonio Conte’s team:
The midfielder’s current deal with the Gunners expires at the end of this season and with his refusal to sign a new deal, Chelsea could swoop and sign him. The sweetness of this deal for Chelsea is that at 24, Chamberlain is still a young player yet to enter his prime and will surely be a good signing with his huge potentials. More so, he possess good resale value in the eventuality that he fulfills his potential at Chelsea. Also, Chelsea’s shortage on homegrown players add spice to this deal as Chamberlain qualifies in this regard and his adaptability and suitability to play in the Premier league is a huge advantage as this will make it easy for him to slot into the team.
Essentially, his versatility to play in central midfield, in attacking positions behind the striker and at right wingback makes him an ideal signing for Chelsea.
The England midfielder is another player who would boost Chelsea’s homegrown quota. More so, his exceptional ability to add guile, craft and staying power to the team represents good value. His awing partnership with Kante powered the Foxes to the title in 2015/16 season. The replication of such is the drive behind Chelsea’s move for him, and if signed by the club it will surely be a boost to Conte’s team. At 27, Chelsea would be signing a player with a winning mentality and his prime.
The Spurs and England International fullback is another player with huge experience and exceptional skillset that would boost the Chelsea team. Rose is rated as the best left-back in the Premier league and would certainly provide suitable covering in that position at Chelsea. But the question on this deal is: ‘Will Spurs be willing to sell one of their best players to bitter rival? Only time will tell.
It’s quite shocking to see this guy on my list, but believe me he will certainly be a different and unique option in attack for Chelsea. His affinity with Conte while at Juventus makes it ideal. The big Swansea striker’s hold up play, aerial threat and experience playing in the Premier League and in European competitions with Athletic Bilbao and Juventus will be valuable to Conte and Chelsea.
If these aforementioned players are signed, they will provide squad depth and value. Chelsea would also have signed a player for each side of the team – attack, midfield and defence. Let’s hope for the best.
