This year Chelsea have been enduring one of most disastrous campaigns faced by a top tier club in recent history. Nothing has gone according to plan for the Blues, from mismatched tactics to underperforming players and reported dissent in the dressing room all contributing to their decline this year.Curiously, the London club have a massive 33 players on loan at the moment – players that are more than capable of contributing vital inputs for them this season but are unavailable as they were deemed surplus at the start of the year and shipped away to get regular game time.These are the 5 best players that Chelsea currently have loaned out and that they desperately need back.
#5 Tomas Kalas
Chelsea’s dismal campaign this season has largely been down to their crumbling defence. The once impregnable Chelsea back four has been constantly ripped to shreds this year. As a result, rumours of a complete overhaul of Chelsea’s defence have been circulating.
While a complete overhaul may not be necessary given the fact that the Chelsea defence is still comprised of impressive individuals, a new, fresh injection to that ageing backline would be more than welcome.
Chelsea academy product Tomas Kalas could be the perfect fit. Currently on loan at Middlesborough, the defender is quick on his feet and with a lot of experience on his shoulders for someone of his age, the Czech full back displayed his incredible maturity and ability when he successfully marshalled the mighty Luis Suarez and Daniel Sturridge at Anfield when Chelsea took them on two years ago.
