How Chelsea Made Use Of Just Concluded Transfer Window To Improve The Club's Squad

The European transfer window for football clubs was closed by August 31, the next one is expected to come up in January 2022. 

Chelsea is one of the several football clubs that have utilized the just concluded transfer window to improve the quality of their team.

Even though the club missed out on signing Jules Koundé, the players added to the team have improved the depth of the squad at the Stamford Bridge.

This write-up is to shed light on how Chelsea has made use of this transfer window to make the London side better.

1. Signing of a proven goalscorer: The performance of Chelsea last season was good, the Blues won the UEFA Champions League. 

However, the team needed a striker that knows how to put the ball at the back of the opponent's net consistently. Timo Werner was signed to be the goal supplier, but he struggled to live up to expectations. 

The signing of Romelu Lukaku is a great addition to the team, the Blues has a striker that has an impressive goal record.

The Belgian international knows the terrain of EPL having played for several sides in the league before joining Inter Milan in Serie A.

If he finds the right form, he could play important role in the title charge for Chelsea.

2. During the just concluded transfer window, Chelsea has been able to move players that have been peripheral parts of the squad.

Davide Zappacosta, Emerson Palmieri, and Kurt Zouma have left Stamford Bridge to join another football club. Some fringe players have also left on loan to another team thereby creating space for a quality addition to the squad and also generating funds for the club.

3. The signing of Spanish midfielder, Saul Niguez, is another valuable addition to the team. He will increase the options available to the coach and also serve as a cover, if there is an injury to any key member of the squad at the midfield.

With the quality job done by Chelsea during this transfer window, the club has assembled a team that has what it takes to compete for the 2021/2022 English Premier League.
