Chelsea FC manager Thomas Tuchel will probably spend a lot of time mapping out an effective summer transfer strategy. The club will have a busy summer transfer window with Anthony Rudiger already out of the club and many other first-team stars looking through the exit doors.
Romelu Lukaku’s departure on loan to Inter Milan also signals that getting a center-forward and a left-winger should be priorities for the manager. Regarding the left-wing position, Chelsea has many options to explore.
In this article, I’ll highlight 6 of the best left-wingers Chelsea FC can sign this transfer window and provide you with valuable details about them. You can always check liontips.com/tips/basketball for the most accurate sporting predictions.
Chelsea made a resounding statement of ambition in landing Raheem Sterling from Man City. He looks like a great deal.
His dribbling, passing, and shooting abilities make him a goal threat in and around the box. Sterling has been heavily linked with a move to Chelsea this summer, with some journalists already suggesting an agreement between both parties. He will be a decent addition to Chelsea’s attack line, considering his recent track of success.
Somehow, Chelsea’s transfer department let the enigmatic Frenchman slip past their hands. But he would have made the left wing his own if he had come over.
Ousmane Dembele is a skillful and pacy winger capable of playing as a right and left-winger. He can take on almost any defender and whip in dangerous crosses that mostly turn into assists, with him providing 13 of those to his grateful teammates in La Liga last season despite starting just 18 games.
Unfortunately, Dembele recently entered a new deal at Barcelona, tying him for another two years.
Neymar Jr. needs no introduction to football fans around the globe. Young Neymar broke into the global scene at Santos before joining F.C Barcelona in 2013. The highlight of his career has to be when he smashed the world transfer record with his €222million move to Paris Saint-Germain FC in August 2017.
Neymar’s career has been on a downward spiral since moving to PSG, with multiple sources suggesting he’ll leave the club this summer. A player of his caliber will attract top teams, which has been happening with clubs like Chelsea actively monitoring his situation. He’ll make an immediate positive impact on the team if he eventually forces a move to Stamford Bridge.
Leroy Sane made his professional debut with Schalke 04 in 2014 before securing a transfer to Manchester City in 2016. He enjoyed a successful spell at Manchester City, winning two English Premier League titles and the Men’s PFA Young Player of the Year.
Sane may not be the past passer, but his work rate and dribbling are some of his most significant assets on the pitch. While not much has been said about him this summer, Sane will likely add depth and competition to the current Chelsea squad.
Diaby is a French professional footballer who plies his trade at Bayern Leverkusen. He rose quickly through the youth ranks at PSG and is a one-time winner of the Titi d’Or, an award for the most promising player at the academy.
Diaby is a versatile winger with decent passing and shooting abilities; he scored twelve non-penalty goals and had 16 assists last season across all competitions. While no top clubs seem to be vying for him yet, he could be a cheat transfer for Chelsea FC if they can secure a move for the 23-year-old this summer.
Shocking but possible, Eden Hazard spent the most significant part of his career at Stamford Bridge. The 120-capped Belgium national team captain enjoyed massive success at Chelsea, winning numerous individual and team trophies. Hazard is known for his creativity, dribbling, passing, and vision.
He hasn’t been able to replicate his Chelsea form since his €100million move to Real Madrid despite winning two La Liga Santander trophies and one UEFA Champions League title. Hazard was used sparingly last season and is linked with a return move to Chelsea.
These are some of the best left-wingers Chelsea FC can potentially sign this summer. While there may be other options available, these players are the likeliest to make an impact at Stamford Bridge.
