Chelsea has secured a third-place finish in this season’s English Premier League after their 1-1 draw against Leicester City on Thursday night.
Chelsea was tipped to win the Premier League this season after their triumph in the UEFA Champions League last season.
The Blues started the season well and were on top of the league for some weeks, but their dip in form affected them midway.
The Blues now have a new owner after Roman Abramovich was forced to sell the club with the Russian billionaire being hit with Sanctions due to the war between Russia and Ukraine.
For Chelsea to win the league next season, they need to invest in new players who can propel them to the top.
Here are the five players Chelsea needs to sign in the summer.
1 Robert Lewandowski
The Bayern Munich striker has been linked with a move away from Germany with a move to Barcelona or Chelsea. Chelsea is obviously in need of a striker, with Romelu Lukaku failing to live up to expectations since his move to Stamford Bridge last summer.
The Polish striker will offer more strengths in Chelsea’s attack next season if Thomas Tuchel can convince him to join the Blues.
2 Marc Cucurella
The young Spanish defender has been one of the breakthrough players this season in the English Premier League due to his performance for Brighton.
Cucurella’s performance this season earned him Brighton’s player of the season award, and he could be a good competitor for Ben Chilwell with Marcos Alonso likely to leave in the summer.
3 Yves Bissouma
Chelsea has struggled for most of this season due to N’golo Kante’s absence. The Frenchman’s fitness this season cost the Blues some games, and the signing of Bissouma could cover up for those lapses.
The Malian midfielder could be a perfect replacement for the former Leicester City midfielder.
4 Sergino Dest
The Barcelona right-back has been linked with a move to Chelsea, and he could be the best option for the Blues due to the style of play by Thomas Tuchel.
Dest is an attacking right-back and can also play as a winger which could be an added advantage to Tuchel’s side, with Cesar Azpilicueta likely to leave in the summer.
5 Jules Kounde
The France international has caught the eyes of top European sides for the past two seasons due to his performance for Sevilla, and his versatility.
With Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen leaving in the summer, the Sevilla star would be a perfect replacement for both players and can also switch and play as a right back.
