Kalidou Koulibaly tops Chelsea's transfer list of a central defender as Frank Lampard seeks to bring in a replacement for the likes of Kurt Zouma and Toni Rudiger next season. Constant errors on the pitch has left the manager in a tight corner as he desires a reliable player in such positions.
Chelsea have set their sights on a massive overhaul of their defensive department this coming summer transfer window, after a consistent horrendous defensive display from their defenders have left them languishing in a top 4 race with the likes of Wolverhampton and Sheffield united.
Chelsea started the season well, and their performance earned them the respect of pundits and other clubs but along the line, their defensive frailties overshadowed their goalscoring habits and that dug a big hole in their run in for the title.
Frank Lampard's preference of young academy products since his take over of the club's coaching reigns last summer have given confidence to the fans and the club that their lies a bright future ahead of the club.
But the negatives of solely relying on immature and young players crept in suddenly and now they have no choice than to make certain experienced additions to the squad if they have any plans of winning the title and UEFA Champions League next season.
