Chelsea prepare for life after Willian, Pedro with Mexico international

Timothy Aiyeku



Hirving Lozano

Chelsea are already raising concerns about the age of their star wingers, Brazilian international Willian and Spanish international Pedro who are all within 30 years.

This is an indication that both Blues players might not last longer at the Stamford Bridge with the club already preparing to bring in replacements even before they are gone.

PSV winger Hirving Lozano has been pointed as the best fit for both players and the West London side are reported to be preparing a bid to have him switch over to London ahead of the winter transfer window which opens in coming month.

Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri is desperate to have the player’s signature having learnt that Manchester United and Arsenal are also interested in the 23-year-old.

A release clause of about £42 million has been placed for the player should any club seeks for his signature but that is not a big deal for the Italian manager who is bent on having the player join his side in coming months.

Howbeit, the former Napoli boss has won the heart of the Chelsea owners with his great performance which has helped his side gone unbeaten so far in this competition. He is expected to have the backing of the management as well in having some additions so as to stand a better chance of winning a title.
