Premier League 2018-19: 3 Players Chelsea should sign in January
- Three players Chelsea should go for in the winter transfer window
We are already past mid-season and the January transfer window is open for the clubs to make a few signings. Imminent transfers will not only provide a boost to the current team strength of the clubs but will be an upgrade on the depth of a team.
Chelsea are already desperately working on the new signings. They have sealed the deal of a talented forward in Christian Pulisic earlier this week which shows their urgency. It is expected to be a busy transfer window for the club as coach Maurizio Sarri will want his side to challenge for the title as soon as possible.
Chelsea are currently fourth in the English Premier League with 44 points, 10 points behind leaders Liverpool.
After the departure of Antonio Conte, it is evident that Chelsea looks like a different team under the tutelage of Maurizio Sarri with their fluid movements and powerful performances.
Despite a strong start to the season, Chelsea still need to improve in some key areas to challenge the top two consistently and everyone associated with the club recognizes that. Without further ado, let us take a look at three players who can fit easily into Sarri's Chelsea and have an imminent impact on the team.
#1 Edinson Cavani
The major cause of concern at the Stamford Bridge is the poor performances of the sharpshooters in the squad. The continuous failures of Olivier Giroud and Alvaro Morata in front of goal has been holding Chelsea back in this current 2018/19 season and there is no doubt that they desperately need reinforcements.
On the other hand, Uruguayan veteran talisman Edinson Cavani has been in a great form since the start of the season. He scored three goals in his four appearances at the World Cup and impressed as the target man of the Paris Saint-Germain with 10 goals in Ligue 1.
The big talisman can be a perfect fit for Maurizio Sarri's style of play. With Eden Hazard beside him, he can be the proper talisman. Cavani has continuously proved his impact on the big stages.
Moreover, Paris Saint-Germain are reportedly in pressure from UEFA to sell some players due to breach in Financial Fair Play(FFP) rules. This transfer can be a perfect situation for both parties if the deal goes through.
