The Blues have as soon as once more underperformed this season, and though there’s been a slight upturn in outcomes, the West London outfit stay down in ninth place and 12 factors away from a end within the Champions League positions.
A top-four berth was absolutely the minimal anticipated by Todd Boehly and his board once they handed the managerial baton over to Mauricio Pochettino, nevertheless, his model of soccer was at all times going to take time to implement, notably with so many new faces about Stamford Bridge.
It isn’t clear whether or not the American proprietor will give the supervisor the time that he must develop the first-team into a bunch of winners, however the least that Boehly can do in the summertime is give the Argentinian a squad able to doing so.
One participant that’s apparently being checked out by the Premier League membership is Lille’s Jonathan David.
In keeping with The Solar (h/t Fichajes) the Blues would possibly even attempt to rent the participant within the present window, although he stays a plan B to Chelsea’s chase for Napoli ace, Victor Osimhen.
With six targets in 19 Ligue Un video games per WhoScored, David is aware of the place the aim is, although he isn’t fairly in Osimhen’s class and the worth (€40m) would mirror that.
