Chelsea will prioritise bolstering their attacking options in the January transfer window and will move for attack-minded players over central midfielders.
That is according to journalist Paul Brown, who believes that Blues boss Graham Potter will look to add wingers to his side, despite an influx of attacking talent within the Stamford Bridge ranks.
The journalist believes that Potter will prioritise the advanced positions over deeper, central options.
Brown told GIVEMESPORT this when he was asked whether he could see the Blues making a move for Brighton’s Moises Caicedo and/or Southampton’s Romeo Lavia: “I think Chelsea are more likely to go for wingers [than central midfielders], if only because they have a lot of players in those positions who don’t really seem to have a future there. I think Graham Potter in particular is trying to find ways to revamp his attack slightly.”
It goes without saying; upgrades in attack are desperately needed in the SW6 vicinity.
It’s not just down to missed chances though. The Blues struggle to create, which has been their biggest problem this season.
They are ranked as the sixth-lowest side for big chances created, with just 17. Everton sit one place ahead of them having created 18 big chances.
For context, Manchester City have created 40 so far in the Premier League this season.
Chelsea are in desperate need of some creativity in the final third and would be right to look for options in the January transfer window.
