Chelsea, Six Sports

Chelsea fans went through a rough start of their transfer window as they are yet to make new additions to their squad to aid Thomas Tuchel for pre-season.

The club management under the new owner Todd Boehly is ready to back Thomas Tuchel in this summer transfer window. Also, this could be a vital window for the West London club as there will be movement both ways.

Also, the new takeover would provide Chelsea with a war chest to spend this summer. Reports are claiming that the amount could be as high as £200 million. Tuchel will now need to spend that money to improve his squad as there will be plenty of outgoings this term. We will now look at the six signings that could improve Chelsea and will also try to draw a challenging starting 11.

The West Londoners already agreed on a deal for Raheem Sterling with Manchester City. The clubs mutually agreed to a transfer fee of £50 million. However, along with the England international, defender Nathan Ake, his teammate, also agreed upon personal terms with Chelsea.

How Chelsea could lineup in the upcoming season

Goalkeeper: Edouard Mendy

With no goalkeeping prospect that Chelsea would like to sign, the Senegalese keeper will once again keep his starting spot. He arrived for a fee of around £22 million and will start ahead of Kepa Arrizabalaga.

Defenders: Trevor Chalobah, Thiago Silva, Nathan Ake

Rudiger and Christensen already left the club ahead of the next season. Azpilicueta will potentially depart as well. Rumors previously said that Chelsea are in the race to sign Kounde and de Ligt. But now the promotion of Chalobah and the signing of Ake look more likely.

Midfielders: Reece James, Kante, Mount, Chilwell

Reece James had an outstanding last season in Chelsea colors and he will start in the right midfield or wingback position. Mason Mount’s talent and on-the-ball abilities will again make him a guaranteed starter. Kante will reprise his role in midfield as usual. Chilwell will look to make a comeback in the left-wingback position.

Forwards: Sterling, Havertz, Pulisic

With the arrival of Sterling, he will definitely start. Kai Havertz can spearhead the attack line and Pulisic can take the remaining wing slot.
