5 players Chelsea should sign this summer
Chelsea still needs re-enforcements to build a Championship contending team. Who will Conte sign?
The Premier League of 2016-17 promises to be its most exciting one yet as most clubs have strengthened their teams with superb players, thanks to the influx of cash due to TV deals.
In the ever-going race of getting better than your opponent, each Premier League outfit must buy in order to maintain their aspirations for the season. Chelsea endured a dismal campaign last season, finishing 10th, but have managed to sign N’Golo Kante and Michy Batshuayi.
However, some more additions are required before they could challenge for the title as they are still a little weak in some zones. And here are 5 players they could acquire if they want to be title challengers again…
#1 Diego Lopez
This is almost a done deal. As Asmir Begovic looks set to leave the club, Chelsea would be one short in the goalkeeping department. And what better man to replace him at the club than the one who replaced Iker Casillas as Real Madrid’s number 1 in 2013?
Diego Lopez’s career graph in the last few years could be drawn like a zigzag curve. His rise at Real Madrid was balanced by an equally incredible nosedive at AC Milan were a then 16-year-old Donnarumma replaced him between the sticks.
He now finds himself playing second fiddle to a teenager who shows no signs of declination. Courtois, meanwhile, didn’t have the best of years last season, which leaves Lopez with a chance to provide good competition to the Belgian for the goalkeeper’s throne.
