According to British media, Chelsea are negotiating to bring in coach Mauricio Pochettino. If he leads the Blues, he will try to upgrade the attack.
Chelsea are playing badly under interim coach Frank Lampard, they have lost all 4 matches since the English teacher returned to Stamford Bridge. Now the London team is trying to find a new coach, thereby reviving the team next season.
Many candidates are on Chelsea’s radar, including Mauricio Pochettino. It is widely reported that the former Tottenham manager is the No. 1 candidate for the position of head coach at Stamford Bridge, alongside Burnley’s Vincent Kompany and Celtic’s Ange Postecoglou.
If the Argentinian coach goes to Chelsea, he can use a 4-2-3-1 formation instead of the 3-4-3 under Antonio Conte. Kepa Arrizabalaga could be picked to start, Reece James at right-back and Ben Chilwell on the other side.
Thiago Silva and Kalidou Koulibaly may have to make way for the younger pair of Wesley Fofana and Benoit Badiashile at centre-back. N’Golo Kante has still shown his class since returning from injury, he will play alongside record signing Enzo Fernandez.
Noni Madueke and Mykhailo Mudryk will be selected on the flanks of attack. Christopher Nkunku could be brought in from RB Leipzig to play as an attacking midfielder. In a central position, Pochettino can push both Romelu Lukaku and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang away to pick up Victor Osimhen from Napoli.
The player born in 1998 is playing impressively in Napoli. Owner Todd Boehly will continue to splash money to recruit the Nigerian player. Chelsea will have to spend about 100 million euros to hope to get the Napoli player.
