Since upsetting the odds to win the Champions League last season, Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea have become one of the most feared teams in Europe. Their achievement did not come through individual brilliance but as the result of a collective effort. The Blues are the team to beat and it does seem that all those transfer sprees have paid off. However, despite having splashed out millions on attacking players, it is in defense that Chelsea are strongest.
Their attacking players haven’t quite shone as expected. Lukaku, Timo Werner, Ziyech, Haverts and Pulisic havent banged in the goals that many would have anticipated.

What is currently missing in this Chelsea team is a creative midfielder, capable of unlocking the meanest of defenses. Mason Mount leads the way for creativity in the current crop of midfielders at Stamford Bridge. The 22 year old created the second most chances (87) in the Premier League last season only behind Bruno Fernandes. However the Englishman has not quite hit the same heights this season.
After 8 Match-weeks, no Chelsea player makes the top 10 for chances created in the league this season. Perhaps another raid in the coming transfer window might solve the Blues creativity problem, but who could fill that void if the Blues decide to look into the market? Below are some Chelsea transfer targets for the coming transfer window, including a hot midfield asset.

Highly rated England and Borussia Dortmund teenage hotshot, Jude Bellingham is one of Europe’s most prized midfield assets. At such a young age, the former Birmingham midfielder has already established himself as a regular for Dortmund. Jude Bellingham possesses great passing ability and is also capable of pressing on and off the ball. A versatile midfielder, Jude Bellingham would be a useful addition to any top squad in Europe. The fact that he is only just 18 years old means that he’s likely to get a lot better in the coming years.

Is there ever a transfer window in which Erling Haaland is not linked several moves away from the Signal Iduna Park? The Norwegian hotshot has been a long term transfer target for Chelsea and most European heavy weights and is unsurprisingly still being linked with the Blues this window. Chelsea who re-signed Romelu Lukaku for nearly £100 million may soon be in the market for another striker as the big Belgian has not quite reached the levels he achieved at Inter. And even if he does rediscover his scoring touch, injuries and heavy fixture schedule would see the Blues looking for options up front.

Chelsea’s chase of West Ham star Declan Rice is likely to continue in the summer. The Blues sealed a loan move for Atletico’s Saul Niguez last window but the midfielder is struggling to break into the team. Rice could just be the man to rival N’golo Kante in defensive midfield for Chelsea as they chase titles on all fronts. Chelsea FC transfer news
One would think that Chelsea are done signing wingers. They have the likes of Ziyech, Pulisic, Hudson-Odoi and Timo Werner among their ranks but at Chelsea the expectations are high. WIth Ziyech out of form and Pulisic struggling with injuries, the Blues may look to lure Bayern’s Kingsley Coman to Stamford Bridge where the Frenchman will bring creativity from the flanks.
Chelsea tried to sign Jules Kounde last summer but had their bid turned down by Sevilla. The 23-years-old defender is a priority transfer target for the Blues and Thomas Tuchel is keen to add him to his squad as Anthonio Rudiger (whose contract is expiring) is yet to agree a new deal with the Blues.
