Frenkie de Jong, Neymar, Zaha – Five players Chelsea are tipped to sign on transfer deadline day


After the takeover from the consortium led by Todd Boehly, Chelsea have become the highest spenders not just in the Premier League, but in world football this summer. With a staggering total of £167.93million spent so far, the Blues have been able to acquire a host of top talent including the likes of Raheem Sterling, Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella.

However, defeat to Southampton on Tuesday was their second of the Premier League campaign already this season and there is still business to be done before the transfer window draws to a close. Thomas Tuchel has insisted that more signings are required before the end of the transfer window if the club are going to compete, speaking to the press ahead of Tuesday’s fixture against Southampton he explained how more signings would be required for his side to compete this season. The German said:

“Right now, I think we could need some more players in some positions, but it’s very close to the end of the transfer window, and when September 1 comes, I will be a happy coach no matter what happens. I will try to find solutions and not think about what might have happened or what could be.

“Everything that matters is reality, and at the moment [against Leicester], what mattered was finding a way to win. What will matter at Southampton is the same, find a way to win, step up individually and push the team from my side. This is what we will do no matter if players will come or not.”
