Graham Potter seriously considering upgrading two Chelsea players

Report: Graham Potter is now seriously considering upgrading two players at Chelsea

Reports have claimed that Graham Potter wants to upgrade the goalkeeper position at Chelsea.

According to The Sun, the manager and the owner, Todd Boehly, agree that both Kepa Arrizabalaga and Edouard Mendy will need replacing in a future transfer window.

Since Potter came in, it has been the Spaniard that has been the number one option for the majority of matches.

With Mendy being injured upon the manager’s arrival, Kepa began to show glimpses of why he was signed for such a large amount of money a few seasons ago.

An injury of his own ruled him out of a shock World Cup call-up, and saw the Senegal international called up and given his chance.

While he may have been performing okay for the Blues before the international break, his form for his country has been called into question during the World Cup.

Perhaps this has played into Potter’s mind, with The Sun reporting that he is looking to strengthen the position going forwards.

His ability on the ball is certainly something that would benefit Chelsea, given that has been a real notable weakness when Mendy has been a starter at Stamford Bridge.

It won’t be the first time Brighton will have been raided by the Blues either. They received their record fee for a player when Chelsea secured a deal to sign Marc Cucurella.

It has not just been on the pitch where the clubs have been exchanging personnel.

The Blues are set to add Paul Winstanley to their recruitment team, as they look for a cleaner approach to future transfer windows in comparison to the mess that was the summer of 2022.
