5 Players Chelsea need to sign to rebuild themselves for next season
Maurizio Sarri is a dead man walking at Stamford Bridge as a series of poor results have put his job at Stamford Bridge in danger. It was not only the defeat, but the humiliation suffered by the Blues which has angered the fans so much.
While Zinedine Zidane and former Chelsea hero Frank Lampard have been tipped to replace him next season. Whether Sarri remains Chelsea's manager next season or not, Chelsea are likely to go through a squad overhaul next season.
This season under Sarri has made the Chelsea board realise how poor their squad is when compared to other top teams in England. From Frank Lampard and Ashely Cole to Ross Barkley and Marcos Alonso, the dip in individual quality of players at Stamford Bridge is shocking.
Though new players are likely to come in, but Chelsea must make sure that this time their recruitment is good and players are of top-notch quality.
Thus here are five players Chelsea should target to rebuild themselves for next season-
#5 Mateo Kovacic (Real Madrid)
Though the Real Madrid midfielder is currently on loan at Stamford Bridge, Chelsea have no option making this deal permanent. So far he has been impressive for the Blues, but he is yet to score a goal for them.
Kovacic is a versatile midfielder capable of playing anywhere in the midfield. The Croatian is an excellent dribbler and at the same time, he is capable of producing good defensive tackles as well.
Chelsea fans really like him and if reports are believed to be true then the former Inter Milan midfielder has already informed Real Madrid that he would like to make his loan move to Chelsea a permanent one.
Kovacic has won it all in his career with the Los Blancos, but he was never really a crucial first team player in Madrid, he was only a backup. At, Chelsea he could finally become a regular starter and get the appreciation that he deserves.
