Looking beyond Alex Sandro: 15 potential left wing-back targets for Chelsea compared

https://weaintgotnohistory.sbnation.com/2018/1/11/16875030/chelsea-left-wing-back-search-potential-transfer-targets-scouting-statistics-comparison

Go compare go compare

Just looks like my wanting Telles over Sandro (mainly because of price) is right. And anyone with a eye on the future should buy Sessegnon.

Good thing is that we finally seem to go for new LWB. Thank you Newcastle and Rafa. Bad thing - it could be another Zappacosta.

I'd take Giroud in a heartbeat as our backup striker but I'm not sure he sees himself as such. That's why he wants out of Arse, no? He'd be in the same situation here as he is there. Maybe a few more opportunities. He could probably return to France and be the main man, though.

Really, the only reason we even signed anyone this month was because it had been in the works for months and Barkley cost peanuts. I'll be very surprised if anyone else comes in or goes out.

So United today strongly linked with Alexis, Lucas Moura, and Pulisic for the summer. Meanwhile, the club which needs attacking reinforcement more than any other in the top 6 (us) are really not even linked with any attacking player other than Andy Carroll.

 

It’s so tiring. This club has no ambition anymore :(.

Is anyone surprised though... Nope!! Know that they don't want to spend loads of whatever but with the squad we have there's no option. It needs changing. Otherwise long long long half of season. Which probably will be anyway! 

All our links go elsewhere or turn out to be just rumours.

This is why if I were Conte I'd seriously consider leaving in the summer to PSG or Milan. Clubs who are hugely ambitious and will sign any players he wants. I wouldn't blame him or be mad at all if he left. 

Chelsea have now sunk back to the Arsenal or Spuds level where we only look for bargains and up and coming talent which we have to take a massive risk on rather than proven, top class players. Signing any established top level player is a huge ordeal and only ever happens once we've sold a player for a similar amount. One in, one out.

We can't challenge City and United with this policy going forward. You can bet your last penny that the United board will be shitting themselves about the prospect of watching their Manchester rivals doing better than them for the next few years so they'll probably give Mourinho £300m more to spend this summer.

Thing is, we could quite literally spend what, £80m/90m this January on Sandro and Alexis and the squad becomes infinitely better. I mean, we spent £80m on Bakayoko and Drinkwater.

This fact is still hard to stomach for me. You buy a project and a mid-table player for that, while this could have been spent on one truly great player. If we hadn't signed Bakayoko, Matic would have possibly stayed... would we really have been worse off with Matic still here + a world class winger/wing-back? I say we'd be infinitely better, but such logic goes over the board's head. Instead we basically split Matic into 2 inferior players and paid £40m extra to do that.

This is so fucking stupid I can't fathom it. :mouthclosed:

Why all of us fans can see this but the club can't is the most annoying thing. We could make a really good run at the CL and very realistically finish 2nd in the PL with a couple of really good signings. They're content with mediocrity though.

It's absolutely painful to digest that we bought Baka and Danny for roughly 80m.

I'd take him here as well but like you said hes wanting out because he doesn't play a lot. He has got a really good skillset, strong in the air, great at linking up with midfield and other forward players and the last few years he has seemed to add a more killer instinct to his game, although my mate who supports Arsenal, disagrees at times haha. 

I doubt many other bargains will be available this month though. Although a bid of 15m for Luke Shaw or Stefan de Vrij (if Luiz goes) could maybe be decent options? de Vrij is avaliable on a free for the summer I'm sure...

They would want close to £35m. Makes no sense at that price
