Two Top Attacking Midfielders Chelsea Can Sign In January To Solve Attacking Problems.
Chelsea’s recent matches show that “The blues” have attacking problems. Chelsea signed Romelu Lukaku in August because they struggled to score goals last season despite creating many chances.
However, Chelsea are currently facing another type of problem this season. Although Lukaku has shown that he can be very potent up front for Chelsea, the Belgian rarely receives the right service from Chelsea midfielders upfront.
Last season, Chelsea created a lot of chances, but they are currently struggling to create chances for Lukaku and they might need to sign some players in the January transfer window to help solve their attacking problem.
The Positions Chelsea needs to strengthen.
Attacking Midfield: Chelsea attacking midfielders are struggling at the moment. Chelsea need an attacking midfielder like Bruno Fernandes or Manchester City’s Kevin De Bruyne.
Winger: Since Hazard left Chelsea, the team has lacked a winger like him. Although Chelsea have Christian Pulisic, he is injured most of the time. Chelsea need to get a winger who can also help in creating chances.
Players To Sign.
Ruslan Malinovskiy: He is the perfect candidate to help link the Chelsea midfield to the attack. Malinovskiy is a great passer, he can pick out the final passes, he can create chances and he also has an eye for a goal. He will be the perfect attacking midfielder for Chelsea in the Premier League as he is also very good physically.
Malinovskiy is currently playing for Atalanta in Italy and he scored 8 times and provided 12 assists for the Bergamo-based club last season.
Malinovskiy is also a very cheap option. He is 28-years-old and according to Transfermkt he is valued at €30M; So financially, signing him would make sense for Chelsea.
Allan Saint-Maximin: Premier League fans will know this winger all too well. He has the pace and footwork to singlehandedly make a difference in any match. Saint-Maximin can use the ball well, and he could be coached on how to increase his efficiency by Thomas Tuchel.
These two players will surely help Chelsea create many more chances and Romelu Lukaku will benefit from it.
