It all depends on who's available. Griezmann, Di Maria or even Anderson seem like possible targets, but I would hope more options are available.

Anderson is right footed and plays LW isnt he?

Personally i would prefer Fekir, its hardly a makeshift when he played for one team and for only two seasons, he's yet to find is "preferred" position imo. And Anderson is pretty similar experience-wise

But anyway, there arent many options.. in the forum we can keep playing this game of "hope he'll be available", and reject many options like Fekir, but in reality i cant see a WC winger who can possibly be availble this summer. Something could happen, but you need to be ready that nothing will. So then, what do you do.

He can play anywhere in middle. Right, middle or left. Whatever happens, I hope the board make the right choice.

Agree. Instead of taking the typical approach of waiting until the player's stock rises to the point he'd cost you a huge sum of money, you take a bit of a risk by getting him early. Like with Oscar, Zouma and Azpi. Oscar still has issues but he's a regular, Zouma is still learning but has already had a positive impact and Azpi is fantastic.

Of course there are other young players that were brought in that didn't work out (Salah being one of them) but that's football and there was a time the people in charge weren't big on talents. I will say this, I never thought Salah was a world-class talent, despite his goal-scoring performances against Chelsea. Never really rated him highly, but he's still very young though. And he did well at Fiorentina. But he does not possess that bit of magic in his game. Fekir does. And I like the fact he has a good shot on him and takes free-kicks. He can in all positions behind the striker. I would love him here. But sadly no links at all.

It's a shame because anyone with any footballing sense knows he is better than all our attacking midfielders bar Hazard...

I have seen a total of zero of his games since he moved. I know that he lit the league up with his scoring. But serious question... Does he TRACK BACK?

I don't get the way the do they track back line is used in a joke manner.

Fullbacks are constantly judged on what they offer going forward infact even Cesar gets criticised for not offering a lot going forward (although I believe that's more down to instructions but that's for another argument) despite being as good a defender as anyone around right now so why shouldn't the question be asked in reverse for wingers?

Sorry i'll quote a cliche... "Defense wins championships."

Defense is effort and dedication. Thats why i believe a lot of chelsea fans love willian now. Including me who honestly i cristicised him early on.

I somehow refuse to believe that Salah is considerably worse than Willian and Cuadrado. And if so, no wonder he also is 5 years younger and can still mature as player whereas Cuadrado and Willian will never be more than technically gifted workhorses with below average output. I also refuse to believe Willian, Salah and Cuadrado are considerably worse than Reus, Griezmann, Fekir or Felipe Anderson. But i guess the grass is always greener.... However I have accepted the fact that our RW problem will not be solved by throwing money on it. I would like to give someone of our army of wingers at the club or out on loan the same chance Willian has been given if the latter fails to deliver at some point next season.

He isn't. People just like to assume he is.

Mohamed Salah’s agent reveals he has “power of veto” over a Fiorentina extension and could return to Chelsea.

The Egypt international arrived in January on loan as part of the deal taking Juan Guillermo Cuadrado to Stamford Bridge.

“Fiorentina do have the option to extend the loan, but the player also has power of veto,” representative Ulisse Savini told Sportitalia.

“Right now he is on international duty, but when he returns then he’ll make a decision.”

Salah could therefore return to Chelsea, though he’d likely be sold on somewhere else.

The Viola’s deal means they have an option to extend the loan by another season, then another option to buy Salah outright after that for a reported £9.5m.
