Chelsea may have the answer to their lack of midfield enthusiasm.

Chelsea FC have been trying to find their mark this season, as the team currently sits at 10th place in the Premier League tables with a record of 7 wins, 4 draws and 5 losses overall. This club is missing some key pieces on the field and need to fill some spots to help this club get back on a winning streak. With the transfer window open, Chelsea needs to go after a star midfielder and one player they should start talks with is Weston McKennie of Juventus.

Weston McKennie would bring some speed, agility, and overall play making ability at the midfield position, which is something that Chelsea is greatly missing. Sure, Chelsea has some great midfielders such as Jorginho, N’Golo Kante, and Mason Mount, however they need to add a player that is a willing to make plays and create opportunities that will lead to the ball finding the back of the net. McKennie can create plays that will slow down attacker, bring that ball up with his fancy foot work, and send the ball into the box that will lead to a quick attack and scoring opportunities.

If McKennie does decide to join Chelsea, he would also join fellow U.S. Soccer teammate, Christian Pulisic, which can be a impressive duo when both players are on the field together. When these two connect they lead to scoring goals, providing an impressive offense attack, and has the ability to provide the spark that Chelsea needs for the rest of the season.

Now, McKennie has rejected an offer from both Bournemouth and Aston Villa, as he is showing interest with both Chelsea and Tottenham Hotspurs. The only questions that remain are, will The Blues go in on McKennie and if so, how much are they willing to give for a player of his status? These are questions that we will have to wait and see as we continue to keep an eye on the transfer window.
