Mauricio Pochettino is set to be accorded a squad which is ready to play for the badge. Their hunger for trophies may be cured soon because of the talented players who have already joined.
Midfield was the area to be addressed this window. After the departure of Kante and Mateo Kovacic, it was clear that Chelsea needed a bunch of experienced midfielders to reinforce the squad.

The player agreed to be a Chelsea player and snubbed Liverpool after finding out he was an option. Chelsea will submit a £53million fixed fee with £5million add-ons. The agreement was reached by the two clubs on Wednesday as confirmed by Fabrizio. Better days for Chelsea fans as they feast on new signings happening almost every week. The player is younger than Caicedo and is hoped to be in the plans of Pochettino in midfield.
