Whether Chelsea can sign any players in upcoming transfer windows remains to be seen, as the club seek to battle an imposed ban on them.
But that shouldn’t stop the Blues identifying possible targets and long-term there needs to be some serious improvements made at Stamford Bridge to get back in the Premier League title picture.
The jury is still out on Italian boss Maurizio Sarri after a turbulent time in West London so far and history suggests he may be running on thin ice.
According to the Sun, Chelsea are considering Wolverhampton Wanderers boss Nuno Espritio Santo or Derby County and club legend Frank Lampard as their next manager.
Nuno is an exciting manager that has taken Wolves up to the Premier League and is on course for a seventh-placed finish during his first season in the English top flight.
He plays an exciting brand of football that is built on a solid defence too and in many ways looks a great fit to takeover at Stamford Bridge in the future.
Wolves midfielder Ruben Neves is someone that the Chelsea hierarchy should cast their eye over too, as he would be a brilliant addition under Sarri’s tenure or possibly even his current boss Nuno.
Neves moved to Molineux for just £15.8million (Independent) and he’s turned out to be a bargain signing.
The 22-year-old is a central midfielder that excels in the deep-lying role and dictates possession for his side.
He’s also a set-piece specialist that has scored some stunning long-range strikes in a Wolves shirt and has made huge improvements this season.
The Portugal international has so much potential that he looks destined to play at the top level and he would be a great investment for Chelsea
There is a strong case to suggest he’s already on the same level as Jorginho in terms of his technical ability and his extra goal threat makes him a future superstar.
