Reliable English football journalist Matt Law says the Blues could go for a creative central midfielder rather than a striker. In his assessment, he also said that Thomas Tuchel could play a different system next season.
Here’ what Matt Law said about Chelsea‘s plan for next season on the London Is Blue podcast.
“Some people around Chelsea have told me they feel don’t need a striker, what they need is a Cesc Fabregas and that’s how the goals will be unlocked.
“Thomas Tuchel last week gave a real hint that he might play a different system next season too.”
Meanwhile, the Blues have been linked with a number of strikers including Erling Haaland, Harry Kane, and Sergio Aguero.
However, if they were to go for a more creative midfielder in the market, Tuchel’s 3-4-3 would have to be tweaked slightly to allow the midfielders to have more freedom on the pitch.
