Chelsea missed the signing that may provide an immediate solution

The deal that can address the issue directly in front of the club has simply been disregarded by the Stamford Bridge team

Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen were cut by the Blues after the 2021/22 season because their contracts had expired. If Rudiger moved to Real Madrid, Christensen would have made Barcelona his next trip. Therefore, the host club at Stamford Bridge is also scrambling to bolster the defense.

For £ 34 million, they quickly and successfully grabbed Kalidou Koulibaly from Napoli. The Senegal international showed his skill as a center defender right away. However, defense depth is still something that head coach Thomas Tuchel wants to improve. When Jules Kounde decided to join Barcelona, attempts to woo him failed.

The Blues are still searching the transfer market for additional central defenders at this time. The West London team is currently interested in Leicester City’s Wesley Fofana. Chelsea was hesitant due to the £80 million asking price from the “Foxes,” though. The 21-year-old celebrity has recently returned from a protracted time of recuperation.

Everton recently revealed that a deal to borrow Conor Coady from Wolves had been finalized. Because the 29-year-old midfielder is capable of resolving the pressing issue the Blues are experiencing, the Blues will likely regret neglecting Coady.

Under Nuno Santo, Coady oversaw the Wolves defense. However, the 1993 star was hardly ever employed until Bruno Lage took office. The cause is that Lage changed to using 4 defenders. Coady does not adapt well to this adjustment because he excels in a three-man defense.

Additionally, Tuchel has crafted a strong defense for Chelsea since taking over the team. The Blues ought to have “stopped” Everton in the Coady deal at a time when finding more central defenders is proving difficult. Due to Thiago Silva and Cesar Azpilicueta’s “age” and significant danger of injury, Coady can be a good backup option.

The central defender, who is 29 years old, is quick, powerful, good in the air, and able to move the ball with ease. When Coady, a player born in 1993, had 10 caps for the Three Lions, England coach Gareth Southgate noticed his talent. Although Thomas Tuchel may want to bring in a contract for the long term, it must be accepted that Chelsea must find the force to address the current issue.

Chelsea striker undergoes medical examination.

Timo Werner’s departure from Chelsea is almost certain at this point. The Stamford Bridge team is unhappy with the German striker’s performance and wants to get rid of him as soon as possible in order to make room for a better striker.

Werner is on his way back to his old club RB Leipzig, according to journalist Fabrizio Romano.

Werner was once known as a superior assassin in the Leipzig uniform. After 45 appearances in all competitions with the German team last season, the 26-year-old star scored 34 goals and contributed 13 assists. This could be the reason he is excited about the prospect of returning to his hometown and revitalizing his career.
