Chelsea have been a bit quiet over the course of the January transfer window so far…
It was always expected, of course, given how impressive Antonio Conte’s side has been so far in the Premier League. They are currently standing tall at the top of the table, with each of Chelsea’s players putting in an excellent shift so far this season.
However, despite the good results – one thing cannot be denied. Chelsea have done well, but Antonio Conte’s squad is stretched very thin – and the Blues’ midfield is an area of particular concern.
Conte has largely had to opt for the same two players, N’Golo Kante and Nemanja Matic, in the heart of the midfield all season long – with no other player offering the resolute defending that the Italian demands.
As a result, it could be argued that the Blues need to bring in a couple of new faces in the middle of the park over the next few days. With a Premier League title fight on the horizon, Conte needs all the squad depth that he can get.
With that said, surely it’s time for Abramovich to try and sign these 2 midfielders for Chelsea this week?
