Chelsea Transfer News: Chelsea registered a much-required 2-0 victory against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday night. Hakim Ziyech and Thiago Silva got on the scoresheet for the home team.
This was a much-required victory for Chelsea after a string of poor performances. Additionally, this also takes them one step closer to securing a top-three berth given the title race is over.
However, Chelsea’s problems are still far from resolved. They still need to sign a substantial amount of players in the January transfer window to get back on track for the remainder of the season.
Firstly the main priority at the moment for Chelsea is to get a left fullback. This is crucial in Thomas Tuchel‘s Chelsea as he was using English international Ben Chilwell beautifully in his system.
Moreover, the absence of Reece James has affected Chelsea a lot. The two mainstays of Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea are out injured and they need to find quick substitutes.
Earlier, Chelsea was linked with a host of players which included the likes of Lucas Digne and Theo Hernandez. However, both these deals are now off the charts for Chelsea who need to look elsewhere.
