I imagine Chelsea have given Thomas Tuchel two gamers in two positions which are urgent wants to assist flip this squad from prime 4 challengers to title challengers.
The one slight disappointment is lacking out on signing Jules Kounde from Sevilla. However that wasn’t such a urgent want as a brand new centre midfielder in my view, and Kounde can wait till the following window being a participant doubtlessly arriving for the long run.
Chelsea NEEDED an actual quantity 9, a striker who will are available in an immediately rating objectives and make an influence, a striker who was ready-made and already confirmed – Lukaku is that man.
Not solely is Lukaku a pure born aim scorer, his expertise and affect may also be large for Chelsea this season and going ahead. He doesn’t solely convey all of the qualities of an all-round striker, he additionally brings a prime mentality and affect to others on this squad.
He’s the big-name striker that Tuchel wished, and the striker that can make an immediate influence.
Speaking of all-round high quality gamers, Saul Niguez is precisely this. Signing him on deadline day on a mortgage take care of an possibility to purchase is an absolute no brainer in my view. It’s a low-risk transfer that may additionally convey so many advantages.
With Chelsea taking part in with two quantity 6s and solely having three actual choices there for that position proper now, bringing Saul in was a genius transfer. With N’Golo Kante fighting accidents these final couple of years, we positively wanted an additional centre midfielder that may play within the 6.
Saul has all of it about his sport and is precisely the kind of participant that Tuchel likes, he has the grit and vitality and he is able to combat on the pitch. However not solely that he brings actual high quality, he’s intelligent on the ball, can rating objectives, create, and in addition be an actual asset defensively. He can dribble the ball nicely and play in a variety of completely different positions.
What makes this window higher? We led to it web revenue of round £30m regardless of spending virtually £100m on Lukaku! We did some actually shrewd switch enterprise when it comes to gross sales and loans, don’t neglect on common each mortgage brings in a price of one thing between £1m-£2m and that’s not included in our web spend revenue determine above.
And all this throughout a time the place many golf equipment are nonetheless struggling financially after the pandemic!
