After only signing two players last summer and failing in their attempts to sign other players, Chelsea football club will be able to return to the transfer market in January, if their current situation continues.
In recent months, the club has been linked with moves for players such as Niklas Sule, Franck Kessie, and even Pedri, whose contract with FC Barcelona will expire at the end of the season. I believe the following are four compelling reasons for Chelsea to sign these three players when the January transfer market opens:
1. First and foremost, they require a better defensive midfielder. Some Chelsea supporters may wonder why the club is still in the market for another defensive midfielder when they already have players such as Antonio Rudiger and Thiago Silva on their books.
However, if Antonio Rudiger does not renew his contract with the London-based club before the end of the current season, he will become a free agent the following summer. A move for the veteran defender is now being discussed by clubs such as Paris Saint-Germain of the French football association.
So signing a player like Niklas Sule, who can replace the German if he leaves the club, will be a wise move for Chelsea. They should not rely on Thiago Silva, who is getting older, as a long-term solution for the club.
2. A space in the Chelsea midfield could open up at some point in the future, which would be a concern for all fans of the Premier League team. In light of the fact that Pedri has less than a year left on his contract with Barcelona, they should sign him in January in order to benefit from the lower cost of acquiring him.
This is a temporary arrangement, and Saul Niguez will return to his former club, Athletico Madrid, at the end of the season. Chelsea have no option to extend the agreement beyond this season.
So this could have an impact on the Blues because Kante has been hampered by injuries this season, and the squad is competing in a number of tournaments this season, with the possibility of appearing in a number more competitions next season.
3. The combo of Pedri and Franck Kessie are rising stars: When an established team gets a young player, it is almost assured that the player will remain with the team for a long period of time; this is one advantage that Chelsea might reap if they sign the combination of Pedri and Franck Kessie.
Frank Kessie is 24 years old and has the potential to play for the club for many years to come. The same can be said for Pedri, who is only 18 years old and has the potential to play for the club for many years.
4 - A stronger squad: If Chelsea can add these three players, they will have a stronger squad that will almost certainly perform better than the one we are currently seeing.
There is currently good depth in the Chelsea football club's squad, but that may not be the case in the coming months due to the fact that players such as Thiago Silva and even Andreas Christensen are reaching the end of their careers and may not be able to perform at their peak levels in the coming months.
