With Willian and Pedro both looking almost certain to leave and Ziyech coming in, perhaps we should not be looking too far away for a new winger. With Ziyech poised to be part of the starting eleven and Pulisic and CHO both providing good competition, perhaps we should look at Kenedy as a suitable replacement for Pedro. Kenedy, I believe, used to play as a right winger back in Brazil, and - just like Pulisic and CHO (I don't know about Ziyech) - he should therefore be able to play on either side. I have always thought that Kenedy has performed decently for us whenever given the chance, so if he would want to prove that he can actually play for a club like Chelsea - even if just a substitute - it would be a great chance for him, I think.
The question remains, though, if he would want to be our backup. That I do not know, but what I do know is that I think he would be an adequate replacement for the wingers that are most likely leaving us, and sticking with him rather than buying a new player might save us some money?
What do you guys think? :)

I think Willian may still stay EmilSC, he likes London and common sense says keep either one of Willian or Pedro. As you rightly say, Ziyech, Pulisic and Cho are top players and likely to be competing for 2 starting places. If Willian and Pedro do leave then Kenedy is a good shout though.

Willian appears intent on sticking to his three year contract demand. He should be happy we offered two, but won't take it and will move on.

I think Pedro might stay to add experienced backup to the other three.

{Ed002's Note - Pedro is not staying and the situation with Willian is not as clear cut as you suggest.}

Willian and Pedro out, sign Sancho our starting winger for 10 years with pulisic and Hudson-Odoi on the other wing. Simples.

I don’t think Sancho will be joining us. I think we have done our wide player business.

I think there will be three players signed and at least two will be naturally left footed.

I wouldn't be surprised at all to see Sancho have another year at Dortmund.

Personally I'm looking forward to seeing teams trying to deal with Ziyech cutting in from the right whilst James overlaps.

If we can have Mount and / or Loftus-Cheek making well timed runs forward too then it's going to be an absolute nightmare for opposition defences.
