After a busy summer of incoming transfers, Chelsea’s Mauricio Pochettino has expressed his desire to continue strengthening the squad by adding two more signings to the already impressive nine new faces at the club this window.
Despite splurging €401.1 million on signings, Pochettino believes there is still room for improvement and wants to ensure that Chelsea can compete against the best teams in the Premier League.
Speaking at a pre-match press conference ahead of Chelsea’s encounter against Luton, Pochettino emphasized the club’s activity in the transfer market and the recent spate of injuries suffered.
He stated, “We need at least one keeper. We have very talented young keepers, but they need time. We need more, and then we were talking about one offensive player, the right profile.”
Pochettino also made it clear that Chelsea is not just looking to sign players for the sake of it but is focused on recruiting players who fit the club’s profile. The Argentine coach highlighted the importance of finding the right balance between talent and suitability for the team.
The determination to strengthen the squad further showcases Chelsea’s ambition to remain competitive and continue their pursuit of success in the Premier League.
“If we can add the right profile, yes, but not to bring players so we can add one more. We don’t want to stop the evolution of some young guys, Broja, Nkunku. Working hard but not to take a decision because we need someone. These two areas we maybe need some players.
“We are trying to find the right profile. The most important is the profile of the player we need to add to the squad so after it won’t be a problem and they can be compatible. That is why it is not easy but yes, we are trying to do something.”
Chelsea are already in talks to sign goalkeeper Djordje Petrovic and have also been linked with Lyon’s Bradley Bracola in attack.
