Chelsea and Thomas Tuchel may well have felt that this current squad they have doesn’t really need improving too much as they went on a 14-game unbeaten run.
However, yesterday’s 5-2 defeat to West Brom would surely have sent a stark reminder that this squad is often too spineless and mentally weak, and also some of the players are just not consistently good enough.

This is what pretty much all supporters and previous managers have been saying for some time. Yes Tuchel has done very well since he arrived and improved a lot, but his players folded yesterday, as they often do.
The Daily Express have named their four players who they believe Chelsea will target to bring in this summer and improve the squad and put them in a good position to challenge for trophies next season.
They name Gianluigi Donnarumma of AC Milan, Niklas Sule of Bayern Munich, David Alaba of Bayernb Munich, and of course Erling Haaland of Dortmund.
Two of these would cost nothing in transfer fees, becoming free agents this summer.
