Exploring the potential Chelsea FC transfers for the 22/23 season: Maguire & Aubameyang

Since the appointment of Todd Boehly as the club's new chairman earlier this summer, Chelsea has made it clear that they have no problems with spending heavily. The American entrepreneur has already spent more than 181 million dollars on new players, the club has signed Marc Cucurella, Raheem Sterling, and Kalidou Koulibaly.

The Blues have gotten off to a reasonable start to the 2022/2023 Premier League season and as the transfer window is still open they would still like to do some business. If you believe that Chelsea FC can sign more players then it is worth making a punt on an online platform that can be found here, the platform will give you fantastic odds, as well as great bonuses and promotions. On the platform, you have the option of wagering on other Premier League club transfer targets as well as the option of making outright and win bets. Nevertheless, who are Chelsea FC interested in?

Harry Maguire

Chelsea has inquired about the availability of Manchester United's captain, Harry Maguire and the Blues are in direct communication with the Red Devils. The English international Maguire has failed to find his form while playing for Manchester United at Old Trafford for some time now, and one might argue that he would be more suited to playing in a system that utilises three defenders at the back, like the one that is used by Chelsea.

It would be the most surprising transfer of this summer if it were to really take place, but many United supporters would be happy to see Maguire depart, particularly if a rumoured swap deal for Christian Pulisic from Chelsea could be done.

In the event that Thomas Tuchel's team is unable to get either Fofana or Maguire, the ever- reliable Thiago Silva represents a formidable alternative at centre defence. However, the Brazilian will be 38 years old near the end of September and probably will not be a viable option for the centre-back position in the long run.

Frenkie De Jong

At one point during the 22/23 transfer window, it looked like Chelsea would be able to steal Frenkie de Jong away from Manchester United despite the fact that he was playing for Barcelona.

However, Manchester United have confirmed that they have signed Casemiro, a successful Brazilian player from Real Madrid. Because of this, it is no longer likely that the Dutch international will be moving to the Premier League. Chelsea FC was also interested in signing Frenkie De Jong but because the Blue signed the Spanish midfield Marc Cucurella, the club are no longer interested in signing the Barcelona midfielder.

In any event, the signing of De Jong was never an absolute necessity for the west London side. N'Golo Kante and Jorginho are more than capable of keeping things tight in the centre of the pitch while Chelsea is gifted with a plethora of choices in the central midfield position.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang

The Blues obviously need extra resources, particularly in the last third of the field, especially now that Timo Werner has returned to Leipzig and Romelu Lukaku returned to Inter. It has been stated that Chelsea is interested in signing another Leipzig attacker named Christopher Nkunku and that they feel they can get the 24-year-old player during the next summer transfer window.

However, the club is close to finalising a deal to bring back to the Premier League Pierre- Emerick Aubameyang, a striker who formerly played for Arsenal. Aubameyang has already shown that he can score goals in the English Premier League, despite the fact that he is now 33 years old. During his five years at the Emirates, Aubameyang has scored 68 Premier League goals in 128 games.

The former Gabonese international shouldn't have any trouble picking up where he left off in the Premier League, especially with Sterling and Mason Mount offering backup on either side of him.
