Arsenal v Everton - Premier League
Sanchez is expected to attract a lot of buyers come January

Chelsea being the defending champions have not even nearly replicated the form they displayed in the previous year. Although they are a formidable threat with the quality players the team possesses, It is not sufficient to match up to the standards of Manchester City or European giants like PSG, Real Madrid, Barcelona and Bayern Munich.

Although the current focus should be on retaining for the Premier League (despite the fact that Manchester City are 14 points ahead and are getting better every single game), even competing in the Champions League, FA Cup and Carabao Cup needs some quality additions to add to the consistency in performances and depth in the squad.

Here are few transfers that can help Chelsea achieve the above goals:

#1 Alexis Sanchez

Sanchez is rumoured to join the likes of Manchester City and PSG in the hunt for silverware. With a mere net expenditure of less than £5 million in the summer, Chelsea do have the financial power to compete with Man City and PSG for Sanchez.

A difference maker, a player who you can count on, a big match player is all that Chelsea need and they can find one in Alexis. The Chilean being versatile can be deployed in any system or formation. He can provide competition to the existing wingers, can be deployed as a centre-forward, a false nine, a second striker or in a number 10 role and thus can fit in both of Antonio Conte’s preferred formations i.e. 3-4-3 or 3-5-2.

Thus with the increase in depth and the quality he brings in the set pieces, Sanchez is the first pick on this list.
