Pochettino coordinates with Todd Boehly on three focus transfers Chelsea must meet

With the hiring of Mauricio Pochettino as manager, Chelsea has taken a significant step toward enhancing its squad for the upcoming season. On Monday afternoon, the 51-year-old was unveiled as the Blues’ next head coach, signing a two-year contract with a third-year option.

After weeks of positive negotiations, football.london understands that Pochettino consented to replace Frank Lampard earlier this month. The former Tottenham manager will formally begin his role as manager on July 1, giving him a full preseason to settle in and begin planning for the upcoming season.

It is anticipated that a number of players will depart Chelsea this summer, but there will also be arrivals. Pochettino and co-sporting executives Paul Winstanley and Laurence Stewart appear to be off to a good start.

According to football.london’s sources, all three players concur that Chelsea must prioritize signing a striker, a central midfielder, and a goalkeeper this summer.

Victor Osimhen has been rumored to replace Kai Havertz in the frontline, while Manuel Ugarte appears destined to partner Enzo Fernandez in an intriguing double pivot.

David Raya has been mentioned as a potential new goalkeeper for the Blues, but he is also rumored to be of interest to Tottenham. Pochettino is on the same wavelength as Winstanley and Stewart, which is an excellent starting point.

Gary Neville believes Chelsea only needs a new striker and goalkeeper to contend for the Premier League title next season, despite the uncertainty in the midfield. The former Manchester United defender stated on The Overlap, “They lack a center-forward.” I believe the goalkeeper could be improved.

Wesley Fofana the centre-back I thought was fantastic, they have Benoit Badiashile on the bench, Kalidou Koulibaly is obviously a decent defender, and Ben Chilwell and Reece James have the potential to be the best full-backs if they stay fit.

“I thought the midfield trio of Enzo Fernandez, Mateo Kovacic, and N’Golo Kante, behind Manchester City’s Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne, and Ilkay Gundogan, was arguably the best midfield trio I’ve seen all season, second only to Manchester City’s Rodri, Kevin De Bruyne, and Ilkay Gundogan. They were exceptional as a trio.

“And then there’s Joao Felix and Kai Havertz – if you place in a center-forward… They had Mason Mount and Raheem Sterling on the bench, as well as a large number of other players. Thiago Silva will return.

“I wondered, if you bring in a proper manager and make a few solid signings, are they closer than, say, Manchester United? Considering Marcel Sabitzer, Scott McTominay, and Bruno Fernandes in Manchester United’s midfield, Casemiro must return immediately.

“Manchester United requires a center forward, as well as some full-backs and a center-back. So you gaze at it and wonder who is actually closer. Liverpool appears to be a million miles distant right now.

“Liverpool appears to need a bit – or a lot – of a rebuild. Therefore, I believe Chelsea displayed some promise [against Liverpool], as they played fairly well and were by far the superior team.

Taking into consideration the athletes they have, they may be closer than we all believe.
