If you are a fan of Chelsea, the latest news from Stamford Bridge will probably be the best you have had the whole week.
Chelsea is reportedly very close to reaching an agreement to buying Ben Chilwell from Leicester. The left-back defender had shown interest in shifting base to Stamford Bridge. His dreams are close to reality as Chelsea head coach Frank Lampard has pushed for the signing. For a fee of about £50m, the transfer is understood to be at its last stages of implementation.
How will these two transfers, if they go through, affect Chelsea’s performance in the next season? If you are a fan of the team, or just like to bet on winners, visit Ussportsbonus.com to know more.
Chelsea Reinforcing Its Left-Back Defense
Chelsea has had a glaring weakness in the 2019/20 season. The most notable is the team’s 4-1 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League. At the beginning of the Premier League, Chelsea conceded 4 goals to Manchester United without touching the opponent’s net. This may have caused Lampard to lose faith in defenders Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso. It explains why it is crucial for the team to close the Chilwell deal in this transfer window.
While Leicester hoped to fetch a bounty price for the English defender, the team failed to qualify for Champions League. This significantly hurt their negotiations prospects in favor of Chelsea. However, it does not discount the fact that Chilwell had his eyes on Chelsea as early as last year.
Chilwell Signing a Good Deal for Chelsea at the Expense of Leicester
Leicester may have been willing to sell the player at the right price and circumstances. Unfortunately, the circumstances this year have been gravely unfavorable to them. The team may be exploring signing Argentinian Nicolás Tagliafico to replace Chilwell in the next season. Tagliafico plays left-back for Ajax, the same position Chilwell plays.
However, there is concern regarding Chilwell’s performance after he missed several last games of the season due to a knee injury. He underwent several medical checks to address the problem and is recovering well. Lampard expressed his hopes that the injury will not prevent him from hitting the ground running when the season resumes next month.

Chelsea’s New Defense Lineup
Chelsea looks to strengthen its defenses with three more impressive signings this season. The team has already signed up Timo Werner and Hakim Ziyech. Chelsea beat Bayern Munich and Liverpool to sign Timo from RB Leipzig in June. They also bought Hakim for a whopping €44m in July.
There are also reports that Lampard is seeking to sign Paris Saint-Germain’s Thiago Silva on a free transfer. The Brazillian central defender is said to be ‘giving priority’ to Chelsea’s offer. To back him up, Lampard is considering signing Kai Havertz from Bayer Leverkusen or Ben White from Brighton.
Should these transfers materialize, Chelsea will have gone above and beyond to create a formidable defense lineup. If you are a big fan of the team, then you are not mistaken to expect fewer goal concessions in the upcoming season.
Lampard Preparing for a Fiery 2020-21 Season
Ask any Chelsea fan, and they will credit the team’s impressive performance to their fiery boss, Lampard. With experience in the pitch, the coach seems to know just what it takes to protect his boys with strategy. Chilwell has been his top target since the start of the season.
Off the pitch, the coach is looking to bolster his staff by getting a new assistant – Anthony Barry from Wigan Athletic. Apparently, Barry is ‘very agreeable’ and is in good terms with Lampard. His impressive performance in training Chelsea youngsters on loan at Wigan did not go unnoticed.Copyright © 2020 Completesports.com All rights reserved.
