Major Reason Why Chelsea Fans Should Be Happy Despite Heavy Loss Against WestHam

Chelsea have a lifeline despite losing in their previous Premier League game against WestHam. The Blues are currently keen on signing Juventus and former Ajax defender Matthijs De Ligt in the upcoming January transfer window. This comes after Chelsea's hunt for French defender Jules Kounde sought to be impossible.

Thomas Tuchel is anxious of bringing more defenders to the club despite having quite a number of stars playing at the back currently. De Ligt's agent Mino Riola is said to be keen on taking the player away from the club following limited play time by the star despite his incredible performances for the club. Chelsea are currently the favourites to sign Matthijs De Ligt incase he leaves Juventus.

De Ligt would then form a great partnership with Thiago Silva, Antonio Rudiger, Chalobah and Azlipicueta at the back with Alonso, Reece James and Ben Chilwell all playing as wing backs. Chelsea lost to WestHam on Saturday noon following defensive error and Tuchel would wish to correct on the leaky defense by bringing more defenders experienced players to the club.
