Chelsea boss Thomas Tuchel has been urged to make a key signing this summer.
According to former Chelsea right-back Glen Johnson, Tuchel should sign Bayern Munich defender David Alaba this summer because he will be ideal for Chelsea’s 3-4-3 formation.
“Chelsea would need Alaba the most,” Johnson told bettingexpert.com amid the speculation surrounding Alaba’s future.
“If they’re going to play with wing-backs he would be the ideal man because he’s an unbelievably good athlete and could play on the left of a back three or as a left wing-back.
“Alaba could fit at Liverpool, but as we’ve seen with big-money defenders, Manchester City are the club that normally do that. If anybody needed him to slot into their formation right now that would be Chelsea.
“I don’t think he should be walking into a club where he’s the highest paid player. Because he’s out of contract I’m sure he’s trying to get a few big teams to come to the table and go to war over him.
“I think every manager thinks differently and has their views on players that they prefer to sign. I think Tuchel will want to bring some players in and I think his number on target will be a striker, just like every team.”
