Chelsea has enjoyed a successful first quarter of the premier league. They are happily sited a point ahead of Liverpool and two in front of Manchester City making them favorites to win the premier league this season. Thomas Tuchel spent £97m last summer to bring Romelu Lukaku to Stamford Bridge but missed out on two other prime targets. However, he seems to continue for more raids elsewhere.
The German manager was determined to land a defender, a striker and a winger last summer but only got a striker. Back to back Christian Pulisic injuries worry the German he needs a quick fix to the problem. Consequently, he is focused to add a winger in January to help bolster his current squad.
The Blues now set sights on Porto's Luis Diaz. The 24 year old is highly recommended by Chelsea scouts who watched him when Chelsea met Porto in champions league quarter finals last season. The Colombian's agent Pini Zahavi is Roman Abramovich's best friend therefore a deal would be materialized in due time. Marina Granovskaia has been told the youngster would cost them up to £67.7m to get the priceless acquisition in January.
