How Chelsea’s Transfer Focus Is Gradually Affecting Them

Last night, Chelsea football club lost to Southampton FC by 2 goals to 1 in their match day 5 English Premier league fixture.

The game exposed how poor the Chelsea team is at the moment despite signing 6 players so far in the summer transfer window. But Chelsea have ignored some of the most important positions in exchange of another.

Chelsea football club does not have a center forward at the moment but have so far signed 2 center backs, Marc Cucurella and Kalidou Koulibaly for s combined fee of £94 million. They are about to announce the signing of Fofana and could seal a deal with Red Bull Leipzig for Gvardiol.

This focus on the defense have not in anyway helped the other departments in the pitch. Last season, Chelsea football club use to have just Kante, Jorginho and Kovacic as the central midfielders.

Knowing fully well that Kovacic and Kante spent most of last season injured, Chelsea went out to buy an inexperienced Carney Chukwuemeka from Aston Villa.

Yesterday, due to the injury of Kante and the match fitness of Kovacic, Jorginho Frello who is not really good with tackling and pressurising opposition players was deployed to play the Defensive Midfield role and we all saw how the Southampton players overran him in the midfield.

Even with the huge focus on defense, Chelsea FC have conceded 8 goals this season. Except something is done today being the transfer deadline day, Chelsea football club will struggle a lot this season.
