Chelsea had been strong favourites to win the Premier League title this season until injuries and Covid-19 disrupted our form in the month of December.
After being top of the Premier League for several weeks, the Blues are now ten points leaders Manchester City after just 3 wins out of 7 Premier League games in the month of December.
Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is set to strengthen Thomas Tuchel’s squad to ensure the Blues win the Premier League title next season.
According to FourFourTwo, Chelsea could make as many as three major signings ahead of next season.
The Blues are battling across the Premier League, the Champions League, the FA Cup and the League Cup, having already landed the Super Cup earlier this season, and the football magazine believes the Blues could add three new players to our ranks by the time the next campaign gets underway.
“Chelsea are set to spend a breathtaking £189m on three players, in a bid to strengthen their squad further,” states the report.
“Top of the list, perhaps unsurprisingly, is Erling Haaland. The Norwegian striker is a target for a number of top clubs, with Barcelona rising surprisingly as one of the favourites for his signature in recent days.
“Blues owner Roman Abramovich will not have to beat off Barca for the forward’s signature but the likes of Manchester United, Manchester City, Liverpool, Bayern Munich and Paris Saint-Germain.
“Ousmane Dembele is another Dortmund alumnus interesting Chelsea.
“The World Cup winner had the best season of his career working under Thomas Tuchel in the Bundesliga. Since making a nine-figure move to Barcelona, things have not panned out as well for Dembele and he is now just months away from becoming a free agent.
“Lucas Digne completes the trio of players that the Blues are targeting.”
