Chelsea already look like the strongest squad in the Premier League and the proof is where they are in the league. Chelsea currently sit top of the league by 9 points and it’s clear they have the power and depth in squad to run away with the league this year. However, next year their rivals will look to strengthen so it’s important Chelsea look towards new additions so they can compete again next season. Here are five players Chelsea can buy in the summer to strengthen their squad even further.
Signing Hector Bellerin from their London rivals Arsenal in the summer would be an unlikely acquisition but it’s one that can happen. We all know Arsenal are a selling club and they do not mind selling their best players if it means they make a profit every year. This will play into Chelsea’s hands, and even though other clubs such as Manchester City and Barcelona are in for the defender, he could still stay in London and compete in the Premier League with Chelsea next year.
Another unlikely addition is of course the Premier League superstar Sergio Aguero who is currently plying his trade with Manchester City. This addition would be hugely unlikely as Manchester City will not want to sell one of their star players to another Premier League rival, but recent rumours suggest he is interested in a move to London and that will surely give Chelsea the fire power they need to go on and win the Premier League next season. Sergio Aguero seems to have lost a lot of love for Manchester City in recent weeks due to their inability to compete for the Premier League title and it’s looking likely a move could be on the cards in the summer.
According to sources, Chelsea missed out on signing Moussa Dembele in the January transfer window because Celtic declined their £34 million offer, but if they wanted to pursue him in the summer it would be hard for Dembele to say no to the Premier League leaders.
A more likely addition for Chelsea in the summer would be Hakan Calhanogulu who currently plays for German Side Bayer Leverkusen as an attacking midfielder. He has been scouted by Chelsea officials who feel he would be a great addition to the squad in the summer, and with a £15 million price tag, Chelsea won’t go far wrong with Hakan as he will likely have a similar sell on price in the future if it doesn’t work out. Hakan has already stated to the media that a move to Stamford Bridge is his preferred destination and as Chelsea already tabled a £15 million offer for him in January, they could offer more in the summer transfer window if they still wanted to pursue the midfielder.
The French international could well be on his way out of Atletico Madrid this summer if they fail to win any silverware, and there are many clubs after his signature. Antoine is linked with multiple clubs around Europe but it’s looking more likely he will sign for a club in the Premier League in the summer, whether that is with Chelsea, Manchester United, Manchester City, or even Liverpool remains to be seen.
The most likely additions Chelsea can expect in the summer are players such as Moussa Dembele and Hakan Calhanoglu, and while enticing Hector Bellerin and Sergio Aguero to a move to Stamford Bridge could prove difficult, there is nothing to suggest it won’t happen with the money Chelsea have and the contracts they are willing to offer.
