1. Harry Kane
The scenario of coach Mauricio Pochettino reuniting with Harry Kane certainly receives a lot of expectations from Chelsea fans. The English striker has experienced a brilliant sublimation period with Tottenham Hotspur under the guidance of Pochettino.
On the side of the Blues, Kane promises to help the London team solve the scoring problem. The ability to score goals has been impressively shown by Kane in the Rooster shirt. The 29-year-old striker brought 273 goals for Tottenham, more than 50 goals for the English national team.
2. Romeo Lavia
Chelsea broke the safe and spent £106 million to own Enzo Fernandez from Benfica. That will not stop the Blues from continuing to spend, bringing in another quality central midfielder in the summer of 2023.
At the moment, Lavia caught the eye of Chelsea. He is seen as a long-term replacement target for N’Golo Kante. The 19-year-old morning star is a rare bright spot in the context of The Saints experiencing a dismal 2022/2023 season.
“I was really impressed with his performance,” Pep Guardiola praised the Belgian midfielder. Lavia used to have a time with Man City. Last summer, Lavia joined Southampton from Man City in a contract worth £ 14 million.
3. Andre Onana
Chelsea’s keeper position has become a hot topic recently. According to Goal, the duo Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy are likely to leave Stamford Bridge this summer. In that context, Andre Onana was linked to the Blues.
Onana is highly appreciated by experts after his performances in the colors of Ajax and Inter Milan. This season, Onana is the No. 1 goalkeeper of Inter Milan. The former Ajax star possesses impressive footwork.
4. Ivan Toney
In comparison, Toney has a ‘softer’ transfer fee than Kane. Physically, the impressive technical background makes Toney an ideal striker. The English striker has made a strong impression in the Brentford shirt this season.
Many Chelsea fans have associated and compared Toney with two former No 9s in the past: Diego Costa and Didier Drogba. Brentford is ready to push away the English striker if he receives a reasonable offer on the negotiating table.
5. Manu Kone
Kone impressed when playing excellently in the role of number 6 in the shirt of Borussia Monchengladbach. The 21-year-old Mai Star is considered by experts to be one of the most promising young midfielders in European football today.
Kone possesses a combination of physical strength, muscle and technical background, good dribbling ability. All those qualities make him a ‘machine’ to intercept the midfield.
Chelsea will face Man United, PSG when pursuing Kone. According to Transfermarkt, Kone is valued at around 25 million euros.
“I’m proud that so many big clubs are interested in me. It can’t change my attitude. I want to finish the season quietly. After that, what will happen will come,” Kone told Le. Parisian.
