Chelsea just announce the signing of England international Ben Chilwell in few hours ago as the Blues announce their third signing of the season.
The Blues have already secured the signing of Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech and this looks promising ahead of next season.
Left back has been a problem position for a while, so the fans should be pleased with the signing of Ben Chilwell.
Obviously he’s not going to resolve all of our defensive issues on his own, so the fans will be hoping for a couple more additions.
The Mirror have recently reported that Chelsea have agreed a two year deal with former PSG captain Thiago Silva so he should make a big difference to the backline, while Sky Sports have indicated that Lille goalkeeper Mike Maignan is now being lined up to replace the much maligned Kepa.
That would allow Chelsea to line up like this next season, and it certainly looks like a well rounded team on paper:
There would still be a couple of positions up for grabs as Kurt Zouma’s pace could be useful next to Silva, while Cesar Azpilicueta might be a safer option that James at right back.
Chelsea fans may still be holding out hope for someone like Kai Havertz to come in and really give the midfield a lift, but at least the defence is starting to look dependable.
