Chelsea surely can’t wait to see the end of the their two-window transfer ban.
In all fairness, it has in part been a blessing in disguise. If the club had been able to sign new players during the most recent transfer window, it is unlikely that youngsters such as Tammy Abraham, Mason Mount and Fikayo Tomori would have been given the opportunities they have done so far, and there is also a strong chance that Frank Lampard would not be the club’s manager like he is now.

However, if they want to compete once again with the likes of Manchester City and Liverpool in the coming years, they will need to sign new recruits to boost their squad. They are already planning ahead, according to The Daily Mail, who say they are leading the chase for left-back Ben Chilwell.
Which English youngster has the most potential?
But, although the 22-year-old is an England international, the Stamford Bridge outfit’s supporters do not seem too happy with the link.
They have taken to Twitter to share their thoughts, and you can see some of the best comments from the social media platform below.
bang bang on, he’s not even good defensively only thing he’s got on Alonso is pace a red passport https://t.co/O3GcDNuA2m

He’s built like shaw. May have weight issues when injured or during preseason. We need pacy gritty full backs. I.e. cole alves marcelo. Emerson when fit can be that. Till one wclass full back appears lets stick with emerson, alonso and maatsen.

Can think of so many better options to battle with Emerson. Atal(who can play both sides), Grimaldo and even just bringing Maatsen through the academy. Chilwell would be so expensive when there’s better options.

Don’t rate him honestly, he was the player that lost the ball the most throughout last season,even if you use the eye test you’ll see. I prefer we spend money on digne

What is this fascination with Chilwell? Is he Chelsea, no. He is a Leicester academy player. This is old backward thinking. We have our own academy and it is now proving it’s worth in the 1st team. Going forward our academy will take preference, keeping us true blue.#KTBFFH
