3 reasons why Newcastle star Jamaal Lascelles would be a great signing for Chelsea

 Departing Defenders


It would come as no surprise to hear that Chelsea are set to usher in a new generation defensively, with a number of defenders likely set to leave the club at the end of the season.

John Terry and Branislav Ivanovic both have deals that are set to expire at the end of the season, and given the duo’s poor form so far this season – a renewal appears unlikely at this point.

In a similar vein, Gary Cahill’s form this season has not been great – and so his future remains up in the air.

Add to this uncertainty surrounding how well Kurt Zouma will come back from his long-term injury lay-off, and you’ve got a concoction of confusion within the Chelsea defence.

It appears inevitable that Chelsea will need to invest in a new central defender at the end of the season – and Jamaal Lascelles would definitely be a great option for that.
