It looks set to be a very exciting few weeks to be a Chelsea fan…
Amidst all the attention surrounding Chelsea’s supposed pursuit of Fernando Llorente, it would appear as though a couple of Chelsea’s proposed pieces of business have gone under the radar over the last few days.
In a story that has come out of nowhere, the Times are reporting that Chelsea are keen on a wing-back rebuild – with Cologne left-back Jonas Hector and West Ham ace Michail Antonio supposedly on the radar of Antonio Conte.
The news came as a surprise, especially considering how well Chelsea’s defence is currently working, with the duo of Marcos Alonso and Victor Moses arguably Chelsea’s best performers so far this season. Antonio Conte has, clearly, got his own ideas, though, and given the start that he has made in the Premier League, the Chelsea faithful are going to have to trust their manager.
Should the duo come in, they will form a key part of an unstoppable Chelsea defence – with a mixture of experience and youth.
With that said, could this be Conte’s dream Chelsea defence after the January transfer window?
