Ahead of the weekend, Thomas Tuchel once confirmed that Chelsea were looking at solutions for the left-back in light of Ben Chilwell’s long-term injury, and that Emerson’s recovery from his loan at Olympique Lyonnais is “one of the options” under consideration in the first place – although initial reports about This possibility was not very promising.

Other options might include trying to call someone else (Ian Matsen? Baba Rahman?), relying on any of the youth (Louis Hall?) or thinking outside the box (Timo Werner finished last night’s game at left back!), or that old classic standby. , panic buying. While it’s still quite early in the month for any kind of panicked overspending, Chelsea also appears to be a little reluctant to make any big moves in the center at the moment.

That’s according to Telegraph’s Matt Law, who adds that a “loan with option” It’s our weapon of choice, and it’s definitely on the football brand in the age of the pandemic. Unfortunately, as Lou explained, this puts us at a disadvantage in any attempt by Lucas Digne or Sergino Dest, with both Everton and Barcelona, ​​respectively, looking for permanent transfers.

While this is certainly a reasonable approach, the idea of ​​taking over the entire second half of the season with Marcos Alonso and… Callum Hudson-Odoi? …as our left back (wing) should motivate us to take more decisive action in the market if necessary – especially with Reece James also ruled out for the next couple of months or so.
