According to Football London, the signing of Saul Niguez from Atletico Madrid would give Thomas Tuchel the one thing his Chelsea squad doesn’t have.
It is believed Saul would be a perfect cover for Chelsea midfielder N’Golo Kante, something which the Blues currently lack.
It is believed Saul would be a good alternative for Tuchel to turn to when Kante needs a break from the side due to his intelligence, both positionally and in possession.
According to FBRef, he averaged 4.16 tackles and interceptions per 90 in La Liga last term – a figure below what Kante and Jorginho achieved in the Premier League – and attempted a similar number of pressures per 90 to the Chelsea midfielders, although he was less successful.
Do you think Saul would be a good addition to the Chelsea team?
