There is a lot of uncertainty surrounding the Premier League season right now, whether it will just be void, or continue to stay suspended.
But my view is that the only solution is to void the season, especially with the Coronavirus outbreak set to peak before it gets better.
With that said, there will still need to be a lot of decisions made in regards to player contracts etc. But effectively, many of the players on the list below could have played their last games for their clubs.
There are a few players out of contract that may well take Chelsea’s eye, especially factoring in that they will need to replace Willy Caballero as backup goalkeeper, as well as two regular first team wingers.
Ben Foster of Watford would be a good shout for the backup keeper role. He is two years younger than Caballero, still playing regular PL football, bags of experience, and a former England international.
John Ruddy of Wolves, or even Joe Hart from Burnley could also be options for this role.
But who else could Chelsea consider?
Well, they have been linked with signing Bournemouth winger Ryan Fraser quite a lot recently, and he is out of contract in the summer. But this is pretty unlikely, unless they see him as a backup player to bulk out the attacking areas.
Then there is Spurs experienced centre back Jan Vertonghen who would fit the type of defender that Frank Lampard wants to bring in. A strong leader-type who is good in the air as well as on the ball.
Manchester United’s exciting young talent Angel Gomes is yet to sign a new deal and Chelsea are rumoured to be interested in bringing him in, this could be quite likely.
But that is probably it from the English leagues anyway, there are a lot more players out of contract around Europe they might consider.
Here is every Premier League player out of contract this June and free to leave.
