Top 5 Players Chelsea Could Sign In Summer 2020

Chelsea have surpassed expectations in their first season under Frank Lampard in the midst of a transfer ban. Following a year of no signings, the Blues have managed to stay in the Premier League top four and have also recorded a decent tally against top-six opposition. However, it has been made abundantly clear that Lampard will need reinforcements if he is to start challenging for trophies again.

Slovenian goalkeeper Jan Oblak has emerged as one of the top targets for Chelsea this summer as they seek to replace current Blues goalkeeper Kepa. Kepa has not been performing up to his paycheck and transfer amount Chelsea paid to have him. Further, Kepa was benched in the FA Cup final against Arsenal. Lampard has no choice but to look for a better goalkeeper to save their defense. Chelsea is ready to bid an amount of £100million for Oblak, and also exchanging him for Kepa to convince Atletico Madrid.

Atletico boss Diego Simeone said about Oblak: “It is normal that they want a goalkeeper of the characteristics and value that Oblak has and it doesn’t surprise me because he is very good.”

He’s not wrong. The Blues definitely need a better goalkeeper urgently.

2. Declan Rice

West Ham centre back Declan Rice is being pursued by Chelsea to improve their defensive and midfielding side. Chelsea is trying to rack up cash – £65m to be precise – for the 21-year old midfielder. Lampard is looking to sell Jorginho in order to be able to buy former Chelsea academy player Declan Rice – and for the Chelsea manager, this seems like a good deal. Lampard has been eyeing the West Ham midfielder for a while and feels like he has good potential to rise at Chelsea, just like his best friend Mason Mount did.

3. Kai Havertz

Kai Havertz is hot in the transfer market right now. Following the signing of Timo Werner, this Bayern Leverkusen striker has been heavily linked with the Blues. Moreover, Havertz has been dropping ‘hints’ on social media by liking Timo Werner’s posts and photos regarding Chelsea. Frank Lampard has naturally noticed Havertz’s potential and how he could fit into this Chelsea side. Currently, Chelsea has offered to pay €76 million (£69m/$90m) for Havertz. However, Leverkusen is now demanding a pay of €100 million(£90m/$111m), following his rise in popularity in Germany.

4. Alex Telles

Chelsea desperately need a left-back and there is no way around it. Marcos Alonso and Emerson Palmieri are simply not cutting it at Stamford Bridge and an upgrade is highly necessary. This is where Alex Telles comes in, a cheaper alternative for Leicester City’s Ben Chilwell.

While Ben has been on Chelsea’s radar for quite some time, an English talent of his pedigree could cost anywhere close to £75 million. Telles, on the other hand, is available for less than half that fee and is also much more experienced. He has been at FC Porto for 4 seasons now after spending one year on loan with Inter Milab. He has also represented Brazil once and is at the prime of his career. Blessed with terrific pace, Telles is terrific in running up and down the left, supplying balls into the opposition box. He is the kind of player that Lampard needs to fully unlock his offensive unit down the left flank. Callum Hudson-Odoi and Christian Pulisic can also benefit from an overlapping fullback like Telles.

5. Andre Onana

Kepa Arrizibalaga has greatly underwhelmed since his record arrival from Atletico Bilbao in 2018. He cost Chelsea a whopping £71.2 million and so far, the Spaniard has disappointed. What Chelsea thought they were getting was a top-tier sweeper-keeper who would secure the backline for years to come. Instead, they got an unstable maverick with a bad attitude. Lampard finally pulled the plug on him and benched him in February.

Even if Kepa stays for one more season, Chelsea will be looking to replace him for the long-term. Andre Onana fits the bill perfectly after impressing with Ajax. The Barcelona academy graduate has certainly built up a reputation for himself in the Eredivisie. His heroics in goal helped the Lancers reach the Champions League semi-finals in 2019. The 24-year-old is reportedly interested in testing his talents in the Premier League and Chelsea are in the best position to offer him regular playing time.
