Chelsea legend Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has urged Chelsea boss Frank Lampard to sign another centre-back in January to help Chelsea’s Premier League chances.
Thiago Silva has impressed for the Blues since joining Chelsea as a free agent during the summer and despite Chelsea having five centre-backs in the squad, Hasselbaink wants Lampard to sign another centre-back in January.
Kalidou Koulibaly has been tipped for a move to the Premier League, but Hasselbaink believes he would prove too costly.
Instead, the former Chelsea striker believes Caglar Soyuncu or Milan Skriniar, who has been linked with Tottenham, would prove better targets.
“A lot of people are talking about Kalidou Koulibaly but he’s 29 years old and would be very expensive,” Hasselbaink said, as quoted by Daily Express.
“I actually quite like the Leicester defender, Caglar Soyuncu. I think he’d be very good at Chelsea.
“Also the defender at Inter Milan, Milan Skriniar – everybody is talking about him, another very good player.
“So there are players out there, but it’s such a difficult position to fill at the moment.”
