With another Championship season all but done and dusted for another year, we’re going to profile at five players that Chelsea could potentially poach from England’s second division to improve their squad in the next few years.

It is worth noting some of these players may well not be Championship players for very long, given either their talent or their position in the table. Some of the players included have already managed to attract plenty of interest from top Premier League clubs.

Cherry picking players from the Championship is something Chelsea have done in the past. The club signed Michael Hector from Reading in the summer and he has since returned to the club after his loan deal expired.

As well as this, the club have used the league in the past to send players out on loan. The likes of Nathaniel Chalobah, Patrick Bamford, and Lucas Piazon are just some that have spent time on loan in the Championship.

The Blues will want to keep an eye on these players, who all look destined for big things in their respective careers.
