According to talkSPORT, Chelsea defender Thiago Silva is the best signing of the season.
TalkSPORT wrote: “Chelsea spent more than £250million ahead of the 2020/21 campaign, but it’s the free signing of a 36-year-old which has changed their team.
“The likes of Timo Werner, Kai Havertz, Edouard Mendy, and Hakim Ziyech in particular, have all impressed – but none have had the same transformational effect as Silva.
“Like when Virgil van Dijk arrived at Liverpool in January 2018, the Brazil veteran has fixed Chelsea’s leaky defence overnight and talkSPORT’s Adrian Durham even claimed he can be the Blues’ version of Van Dijk.
“After getting that horrible moment against West Brom out of his system, the defender hasn’t put a foot wrong.
“Not since John Terry have Chelsea fans since a player so in control of what they’re doing, and everything Silva does just oozes quality.
“The Blues have a certain authority they’ve lacked for a long time with Silva in the team – and his calming influence appears to have rubbed off on everyone around him.”
