Chelsea’s dream line-up after January transfer window as Thomas Tuchel eyes £99million rebuild

It’s unbelievable to think that the January transfer window is just around the corner.

And oh boy, Chelsea need to dip into the mid-season market after a poor run of form has put them in risk of completely dropping out of the the Premier League title race.

As the Spice Girls once sang, ‘when three became two’, the Blues are in danger of this occurring due to their indifferent festive period coupled with the decimation of the squad due to injury and Covid-19 concerns respectively.

Therefore, manager Thomas Tuchel will need to change his tune on the upcoming January transfer window if he is to avoid what the Spice Girls are warning.

“I don’t think so. Because where would this end? Vaccination is still a free choice,” Tuchel responded when asked how Covid-19 could affect transfer pursuits earlier in the month.”I don’t think so. Because where would this end? Vaccination is still a free choice,” Tuchel responded when asked how Covid-19 could affect transfer pursuits earlier in the month.

“We are still free people, adult people, and everybody needs to make their choice.

“Of course it’s strange times, crazy times, and we need to be very careful but it it has not gone so far at the moment here that we discuss vaccination status.

“Not me in person but we, as a club, speak with the players on a regular basis and, of course, they are informed. We have recommendations, information, and we speak on a regular basis from club to players and club to staff.”

The German then added: “Anyway, we are not in talks right now that we bring in players, because first of all we trust our squad, and hope that we can bring all our players back and be in full strength.

“Then we have a strong squad and a good atmosphere to protect. This is where we are right now.”

Now, we know that the European Champions have a number of situations to sort out regarding potential defensive outgoings in January with Antonio Rudiger looking likely to leave in the summer for free if a contract can’t be agreed soon.

On top of dealing with outgoings, there have been a number of different positions that may need extra strengthening if the west London outfit are to make a real statement of intent to Liverpool and Man City going forward for the rest of the 2021/22 campaign.

The left-wing back area is one of the key positions that need looking at due to Ben Chilwell’s potential season defining injury that he suffered at home to Juventus whilst Marcos Alonso has failed to impress in his absence.

Whether the Blues dip into the market for an option like Everton’s Lucas Digne remains to be seen but alternatively, they could look closer to home and give Ian Maatsen a chance to shine.

Next up is the defensive areas and with Rudiger’s future looking rather uncertain, Marina Granovskaia could opt to try and go back in for long-term target Jules Kounde, with Sevilla willing to negotiate an early exit for their star player if the money is right.

Finally, the goal scoring problems could be addressed with a stunning swoop for club legend Eden Hazard who has had his career falter since moving to Spain

If we add the values up of the three aforementioned targets which would total up to £99million as per a mix of Transfermarkt and recent reports – Digne (£32million), Hazard (£21million), Jules Kounde (£46million) – this would prove to be a rather productive transfer window for a team craving to add to their Champions League title of last season.

Without further ado, savenet.one takes a look at Tuchel’s dream line-up post January transfer window if Granovskaia and co. were to sanction this £99m transfer rebuild which would signal real intent to the rest of the league.

As you can see above, the formation would not change at this point in the season.

Kounde’s introduction into the back three would likely see Trevoh Chalobah and Andreas Christensen dislodged from their position, therefore providing healthy competition.

The midfield four would stay very similar with the exception of Digne being the first choice left wing-back if Chilwell was to be ruled out for the rest of the season.
