EPL || 3 Top Chelsea Players Regarded As Worst Club Signing Over The Last 5 Years - OPINION

No doubt, Chelsea FC is one of the most successful clubs in England and has won almost every trophy in the history of football. Under Roman Abramovich they have won 21 major trophies in 19 years. More often than not, winning trophies depends on the quality of the players the team recruits and the manager's tactical line-up to win games consistently. Given a number of deals with Chelsea in recent years, this could be seen as the club's worst addition in the last 5 years.

It is always good for the club to look for players of the highest quality, but another important thing is the ability of the players to repeat the form that led the club to sign this player. This top 3 transfer record is considered the worst due to the huge sums included in their contracts as they all failed to impress Bridge.

1. Romelu Lukaku (Inter Milan to Chelsea Fc 2021 – £97.5m).

The Belgian striker returned to Chelsea in fine style last season but left Chelsea with his head stuck to the ground. Romelu Lukaku first joined Chelsea from Everton in 2015 before joining Manchester United and then Inter Milan. At that time he played for Inter Milan under the guidance of Italian tactician Antonio Conte. The Belgian has established himself as a Serie A goalscorer, scoring many goals for Inter Milan and eventually helping them win the Serie A title. However, the Belgium international returned to Chelsea last season only to become one of the team's worst players.

Romelu Lukaku scored 15 goals in all games for Chelsea last season, but as Tuhel left him on the bench several times and he didn't start, he ended up returning to Inter Milan on loan.

2. Kepa Arizabalaga.

(Chelsea Atlético Club 2018 – £72m).

After Thibaut Courtois left Chelsea for Real Madrid, the west London club had to break a world transfer record to sign Kepa Arizabalaga in a deal that made him their most expensive goalkeeper. The 23-year-old goalkeeper has disappointed many Chelsea fans with his constant blunders. Chelsea replaced Kepa with Edward Mendy, who joined French Ligue 1 from Rennes.

3. Alvaro Morata (Real Madrid £60 million).

Alvaro Morata was a record £60m transfer from Real Madrid to Chelsea in 2017. Chelsea expect Morata to repeat the form he drew that the Blues pulled him from Real Madrid. The Spaniard ended the season with 15 goals from 48 games for the “Blues” when he was knocked out in the starting XI by Maurizio Sari.
