We've had well publicised problems scoring goals this season. Personally I think that, whilst we'll still likely bring new attacking players in, this could be a problem that could largely sort itself out internally. I expect to see improvements from all of Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi, Mount and Abraham next season, whilst we haven't seen this team with the additional attacking / goal threat of Loftus-Cheek yet this season.

The problem for which I don't see a solution internally is the rate at which we are conceding goals, this is were I believe the club need to focus their transfer business. Preferably in three positions.

GK - The trust in Kepa is done, it's rare that your first choice keeper is dropped and then brought back into the team - unless the understudy does dramatically worse.

HENDERSON would be the ideal replacement, but I can't for the life of me see Man Utd selling him to us - a longer term loan, or sale with a buyback clause, to Sheffield Utd is seemingly more likely. OBLAK is proven at the top level but would be pricey and want UCL football, would Atletico be interested in taking Kepa off our hands in return?

CB - Rudiger, Zouma, Christensen and Tomori are all decent enough, but no combination of the four makes for a good enough partnership. Think the Liverpool CB's without/ before VVD (I don't think there's anyone close to VVD out there) .

He's relatively inexperienced at EPL level, but I really do think MINGS could be the answer here. A vocal leader with the potential to form a very good long-term partnership with either Tomori or Christensen.

DM - I like us playing with our fullbacks pushed on, James could / should provide assists at TAA's level in the near future, someone on the left, like Robertson, would massively improve our attacking threat. I don't think Jorginho deserves the criticism that he gets from fans and the press, I just don't think he's suitable to play as a deep midfielder in this team - I see a return to Italy being on the cards for him this summer. In order for that to happen think we need a deep midfielder who is comfortable pulling further back, almost into defence, when the fullbacks are further upfield.

Staying with the English theme, RICE could perform this role for us - but would he want to return to the club? One of the best I've seen in Europe this season is Lisandro MARTINEZ at Ajax - he'd be an excellent signing.

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea has no interest in any of these players.}

Lol, Ed002 putting a damper.
Are we even interested in a GK, a CB and a DM, Ed002 (in the scenario that no one pushes for a move)?

{Ed002's Note - Chelsea, like all clubs, are interested in a broad spectrum of players.}

Said all along Lisandro Martinez would be my choice for CDM. Brilliant player and fantastic on the ball for a defender. Be like a Makelele type.

Henderson is definitely the keeper I’d go for. United won’t want to let him go but if he’s not given first choice and Frank came calling I think he’d want to come here.

Strakosha I am also a fan of as well.

Please not Declan Rice, he is the epitome of average. Looks a talent because he is alongside terrible players like Carlos Sanchez, plus he clearly burned his bridges with Chelsea long ago. Let Utd waste the outrageous sums West Ham will want for him instead. If we want a punt on defensive midfielder, I'd suggest De Roon from Atalanta, was a decent player at Middlesborough and has come on leaps and bounds in Italy.
