We’re all totally conscious now of the state of affairs we’re on this summer season with our defenders. To recap, we may find yourself shedding 4 senior defenders from our first crew and actually, it’s wanting extra doubtless by the day that we are going to be.
So clearly, changing defenders this summer season is certain to be the precedence for Thomas Tuchel and the club. However there’s arguably simply as an vital a place to signal on this summer season after we have now sorted the defence, and it’s so vital that Tuchel and the brand new homeowners flip to it, and that’s so as to add a real defensive midfielder to the squad.
A participant who will purely sit, has the athleticism, means on the ball, powerful tackler, and in a position to snuff out hazard and shield the again line.
Chelsea don’t at present have a participant equivalent to this of their squad, however many of the high groups on this planet do. We’d like what they name a ‘destroyer’ holding midfielder, and we should be that as a precedence.
Chelsea and Tuchel clearly agree and know this, simply have a look at all of the true defensive midfielders we have now been linked to during the last couple of months. I consider it’s a place we are going to look to sign up, however naturally and importantly, they should and need to rebuild the defence first.
