Chelsea Dealt Blow In Pursuit Of Chilean Ace: 3 Alternatives For Him Including This Real Madrid Star

The race to the top-4 in England this season will be an exciting one and London outfit Chelsea are doing well to not slip up at the top of the table. The manager failed to land many of his top transfer targets in the summer transfer window and is now desperate to land atleast a couple of star players in the winter transfer window, that is now open.

A number of exciting talents are linked with a move to the Stamford Bridge this month but one player they will not be able to land is Bayern Munich star Arturo Vidal. The Chilean international has fallen down the pecking order at the Allianz Arena this season and was target for Chelsea even in the summer.

They were expected to make another move for the player this month but Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has today revealed that Vidal will remain a Bayern player, come deadline day. It will be a blow to Chelsea’s transfer plans and they will have to shift their focus to other players. Here are three alternatives they should definitely look at:

Radja Nainggolan (AS Roma):

The Belgian international was also wanted by Conte in the summer but a deal failed to materialize. Roma were reluctant to sell but seem to have softened their stance after they decided to drop the 29-year old for their most recent game, thanks to his antics off the field on New Year’s Eve. It is suggested that the Serie A outfit could let him go for anything around €50m and Chelsea should act fast, as he is also attracting interests from China.

Mateo Kovacic (Real Madrid):

Another player who was linked with a move to Chelsea in the summer transfer window, Kovacic has failed to find any consistency this season and has been one of the many players who have underperformed at the Bernabeu. Zinedine Zidane is not ready to let him leave but with lack of regular game time at the club, he could be lured out of Spain. He is easily one of the best midfielders at the moment and will be a huge coup for Chelsea but will not be easy to sign.

Saul Niguez (Atletico Madrid):

Finally, a player constantly linked with a move to the Bridge recently, Niguez, is probably Conte’s best option in this role. At just 23, he has already established himself as one of the best midfielder in La Liga, playing for Atletico Madrid. He has two goals and two assists in 17 league outings this season and is a superb fit for Conte’s style of play. Like Kovacic, he will also be hard to lure out of Spain but will be a game changing addition to the squad.
