Ahead of the new season, Chelsea Football Club has listed out lots of players they are willing to sell before the new season commences. Looking back to the club performance in the just concluded season, their problem seems to be in the backline. The club manager Frank Lampard has failed to identify a permanent player in his defense line which has led to the manager rotating the likes of Rudiger, Zouma, Tomori, Christensen, Alonso, Emerson, James and azpilicueta. Aside from that, there are players on loan which may likely see the exit door.
The club is doing well in the transfer market following the signing of Ajax attacking midfielder Ziyech and RB Leipzig forward Timo Werner, with the current players in the club midfield and attacking role, every other club in the league will have to worry about facing Chelsea next season because having players like Pulisic, Werner and Ziyech upfront will definitely give other clubs a nightmare.
Coming down to the club midfield, they don't really need an additional player because they have players who are doing well such as Mount who had a great season with the club since making his debut in the club first league game against Manchester United and easily became the manager favorite, Kovacic is another great player that is boxing the midfield for Chelsea and has always been spectacular whenever he made his way out of the changing room
to the pitch, they also have Ngolo Kante whose future at the club is still shaking though, he is another fantastic player that every manager wishes to have in their team but has suffered some set back in the just concluded season due to injuries.
Loftus Cheek after returning back to the team from injury featured in some games and look like he is ready to fight for his place in the midfield for the club, they still have Ross Barkley who was carrying the team at a time when Ngolo Kante was missed out to injury.
Chelsea scored a total of 69 goals against their opponents and conceded 54 goals which shows how awful they are in defense line, record signing goalkeeper Kepa seems to have lost his confidence on the pitch as he failed to safe his team on many occasions, the club is now out looking for a perfect replacement for him, 58% of their matches have always ended up in both sides scoring.
Frank Lampard is trying to build a formidable team and has not shifted his focus to the team defense line, the club will now have to let go of some defenders before they will be able to bring in a quality defender which means either Rudiger, Zouma, Emerson, Alonso, Tomori, and Christensen may be asked to join another club to create space for a new defender.
Jorginho may also join his former manager Conte at Inter Milan after falling out in the pecking order in the midfield, the midfield combo has always been Kante whenever he is available alongside Mount and Kovacic/Barkley. Willian deal of joining Arsenal is almost done while Pedro will be making his way to Roma, these are two experienced players leaving the club which may not really affect the club looking at how they contain the loss of Hazard to Real Madrid.
The club has now identified some defenders like Ben Chilwell of Leicester City, young starlet Kai Havertz, Declan Rice of Westham but will need to free up some players to bring them onboard. The club is also planning a possible swapping against Paris Saint-German over first-choice goalkeeper Kepa
