Chelsea are expected to be strong contenders for the Premier League in 2020/21 after a major revamp of their squad has been underway since some weeks.
As per the Express, the fresh entrants are all set to be joined by three new faces.
The Blues are looking to give their defence a boost and they are targeting the left-back in Ben Chilwell and the centre-back in Pau Torres. Chilwell and Torres could provide the perfect launching base for the midfield and subsequently, the head of the attack, Timo Werner.
In a bid to strengthen their midfield, the Blues are looking to bring in Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz who is regarded as one of the hottest prospects going around.
Bayern Munich were supposedly interested in him but having secured the services of Leroy Sane, they have backed out of the race. Moreover, with the Bundesliga giants admitting that they would willing to let go of the player for the right price, the road looks clear for Chelsea.
Frank Lampard could very well have a strong squad at his disposal for the next season. Apart from being studded with some big names, the more important thing to note here is the average age of the squad which is set to drop significantly.
Chelsea fans shouldn’t be upset if they do not see any more big and extravagant signings because the club’s plan for the future is already taking shape and one could very well end up seeing them surpass the current Liverpool at this rate, in a few years’ time.
Over the last week, their bid of qualifying for the Champions League took a slight hit as the west Londoners were condemned to a 3-2 defeat at the hands of West Ham. However, their destiny remains in their own hands and with experienced as well as younger players teaming up well, it’s likely that Chelsea will still make it to Europe’s elite competition despite a drip in form.
