Chelsea could be provided with an opportunity to sign Atletico Madrid winger Yannick Carrasco in the January transfer window, according to AS.
The Spanish outlet’s report claims that Atleti boss Diego Simeone is prepared to part with Carrasco this winter following concerns over his behaviour.
Following the situation surrounding Diego Costa this past summer, you would think that Chelsea would steer clear of signing any more ‘bad-boy’ figures.
Despite that, the Metro claim that the reigning champions, alongside Premier League counterparts Arsenal, are interested in signing the Belgian.
Chelsea’s main problem at the time of writing is scoring goals. If Antonio Conte is to draft in offensive reinforcements in January, he ought to ensure that they are going to bring goals to the side.
Carrasco’s goal-scoring record is comparable to both Pedro and Willian’s, but not an improvement. We ought to recognise the goal-scoring exploits of the likes of Raheem Sterling and Mohamed Salah and look to add someone similar to our front-line.
