Rio Ferdinand and Owen Hargreaves both feel that Chelsea must look to sign a new centre-back and goalkeeper before any deal for potential midfielder or attackers. Chelsea has already signed Hakim Ziyech and Timo Werner ahead of the next season but it is their defence that has been their biggest worry. The pair also raised concerns about Mason Mount’s progression if any new midfielders come into the Chelsea team.
Owen Hargreaves said “He’s a great young player, but they have a lot of those great young players, He (Ferdinand) brought up Cech, Drogba and John Terry, they need some leaders in there. You want ready-made (players), who walk in and make you a better team. I think the worry is, they spend right now £200m on Werner, Ziyech and Havertz and they can still finish fourth or fifth. Like Frank said, they want to win a title. It feels like they need to sort out the ‘keeper and the centre-backs first. Mason Mount can play in there. Where does Mason then play? He’s had a good season.”
Rio Ferdinand said “I really like Kai Havertz, I think he’s a fantastic talent, like Owen said, but I would definitely get him if you could still reinforce in the defensive areas and the goalkeeper. Then you’re onto a winner. That makes them a much better team and a team that can definitely improve on this season.”
