good post but two things

Kepa sucks and had best turn it utterly around or we are fucked

and Upamecano is overpriced and a pass for me

I am off the Konate train as well, he looks shaky atm, but lets see where he is next summer

if you want young  Bundesliga CB's for value buy,  I have been so impressed with  Ozan Kabak and Edmond Tapsoba

if we miss out on Havertz

then we damn well better go HARD for a truly WC CB and also one of those 2 young ones above (other young great ones are Merih Demiral, Marash Kumbulla, Pau Torres, Mohammed Salisu (left footed), and an 18yo on a free from PSG, Tanguy Kouassi)

AC and Zouma are not, and will never be, I fear, Chels level

better grab one off this little list

Raphaël Varane 
Alessio Romagnoli (left footed)
Milan Skriniar 
José Giménez   
Marquinhos
Matthijs de Ligt

drop down (still huge upgrade)


Stefan de Vrij   
Caglar Söyüncü    
Rúben Dias

Lukas Klostermann (the more I see him at CB the more I like)

Koulibaly is too old for the 100m euro price the poison dwarf is still demanding

Alaba is more than capable (and left footed) at CB as well, although not sure if he is up to EPL bullying level

I don’t think Havertz and CB are mutually exclusive but tbf I could. It care less if we sign Havertz. Maybe bc I am 99% it won’t happen but I agree, GK and CB are our biggest weaknesses. So I am somewhat irritated by the lack of noise in that department. Our Defence is probably the one thing Lamps Grasp of a he situation has been behind My expectations. It is clear we need more quality there if we want to maintain his very offensive style. And there are plenty even left footed cbs available for decent prices. Most are as usual on your radar already but I watched some Frankfurt games lately and Ndicka has developed nicely. He is a leftie, very quick, tall, very mobile, good reading of the game. Not the best on the ball but still young. Reminds me of young Vvd.  Would IMO probably be our best CB after a season of acclimatization.

Position of strength and we bought Kezman. :( :(

I know he produced great stats, but how any football person could watch Kezman for more than 15 minutes, and yet conclude that he was a man to spend money on is beyond me.

Bayern Munich will consider selling David Alaba rather than running down his contract, putting Premier League clubs on alert for the Austria international. (Telegraph)
FUCK YES.

I'd take him over havertz.

He wants 15m a year. Ok but if he do not want to play LB anymore than it is a problem for us because we need LB badly!

Chelsea must wait to find out whether or not Bayer Leverkusen stick to their £90 million-plus valuation of Kai Havertz as the German club battle for Champions League qualification.

Leverkusen currently value Havertz at more than 100 million euros (£89.5m) as they field interest in the winger from Chelsea, Manchester United, Bayern Munich and Real Madrid.

That is around £20 million more than Chelsea would hope to pay for Havertz, but there is a belief that asking price may have to drop if Leverkusen fail to finish in the top four of the Bundesliga.

Chelsea sense an opportunity with Bayern thought to favour trying to set up a deal for next summer, while United have other high-profile targets such as Jadon Sancho and Jack Grealish, and Real’s spending plans are unclear.

But Chelsea’s hopes of landing Havertz may be effected by whether or not Leverkusen can clinch Champions League qualification for next season.

Leverkusen are fighting with Borussia Moenchengladbach for a Champions League place and qualifying would strengthen their bargaining position.

Chelsea will be interested to see whether or not the Germans can afford to stick to their current Havertz valuation if they fail to secure a Champions League place and instead qualify for the Europa League.

The biggest obstacle for Chelsea may come if Bayern indicate a willingness to match Leverkusen’s asking price in 12 months’ time, although managing director Fernando Caro appeared to pave the way for a sale this summer by saying: “I see that many clubs are interested in him [Havertz]. I see the player’s desire to take the next step in the near future.”

Chelsea have already committed to spending up to £90 million on the signings of Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner, which means matching Leverkusen’s current valuation of Havertz would take them to almost £200 million on three players.

It is believed Chelsea value 21-year-old Havertz at closer to £70 million but it remains to be seen whether either club is prepared or forced to change their stance.

Dont forget LB as well. The post I replied to had Alaba at LB, which would be massive.

Evan N'Dicka I have posted on often in the past, but I have to say he looked so blääääää in almost game I saw him play, as did Frankfurt overall, that I came off the boil with him.

Maybe I need to watch some more. Left-footed CB's of Chels quality and who are actually available are fairly rare I find. Look at the response Gabriel gets on here. Laporte and Lucas Hernandez (PSG will try, Bayern would be insane to sell him), and Clément Lenglet have zero chance of coming here, so that leaves my number one by far, Romagnoli, plus Mohammed Salisu, Pau Torres, Dan-Axel Zagadou, Presnel Kimpembe (tough pull), Alessandro Bastoni (tough pull), Benoît Badiashile (teen), and I will add in Evan N'Dicka. Umtiti looks spent, Abdou Diallo is not as good as most on this list.

What about Lucas Digne as LB option? :) 

Yeah I liked that guy, going to Everton was a step down. 

But to do business with Everton would be problematic as well.

no idea why all are so excited by Nicolas Tagliafico

he is better than what we have now, but he is small (poor in the air) and has only played in weak leagues (not only that, he only started playing in the EU in 2018), plus he is very soon 28yo, so we only would get 2 sub 30yo seasons out of him

if we are going the 27, 28, 29yo year old route

 

David Alaba

Alex Sandro

Alex Telles

Lucas Digne (27 in a month)

are all better players

I am not saying he is shit at all, but surely we can do better

hell, I maybe think that Layvin Kurzawa (27 now, 28 in the fall, and finally healthy again) on a FREE would be better for a couple years than dumping out £30m or so on Tags (and I am not even the biggest Kurzawa fangirl, although he has been spectacular on occasion when truly  healthy)

that would free up cash for CB or GK and still would be an upgrade over what we have now

along those lines, so would a swap with Juve, Alex Sandro for Emerson

OK. I asked because a social media post, reproduced above, claimed that Alaba does not want to play LB anymore.
