Roma star Alessandro Florenzi is reportedly going to be offered a new lifetime contract at the club. The versatile player who started off as a right back but has now shifted to a central midfield role was reportedly a target for Chelsea. He has been an important member for the Romans since he recovered from the knee injury and is likely to accept the new contract.
With the option to chase Florenzi now looking bleak, here are three other options for the Blues to consider.
Kimmich was signed by Bayern as a promising 20-year old. He started his career as a centre midfielder with very good defensive qualities. After moving to Bayern, under Pep Guardiola, he transformed his game and went on to become a right back.
Kimmich’s footballing style is very mature. Steady on the ball with a keen eye for a pass and tremendous crossing abilities means that Kimmich is very competent in terms of attacking. His defensive game lacks in pace at times but his mature sense of positioning covers up for whatever he lacks in his game. He also has a good tackling sense and ball-winning ability, something very important for full backs to have.
This would mean that he would be the perfect or an even better replacement target for Chelsea to chase.
The 25-year old midfielder is a versatile player and can fill in on multiple positions depending on his team’s needs. Roberto joined Barcelona’s famous youth academy La Masia aged 14 and has been at the club ever since. He made his first senior team appearance back in November 2010 in a 5-1 Copa del Rey win against Ceuta at the Camp Nou.
He spent the next three years walking in and out of the first team before cementing his place in the senior squad in 2013. The Spanish player has made close to 180 appearances for the Catalan club scoring 7 goals in the process.
He has won countless honours with the Catalan side and his ability to adapt his game has seen him improvise his play to suit the need of the club. Dani Alves’ departure left a huge void at the club and Roberto has proved himself to be a good enough replacement by cementing his place in the first team. He has played almost 30 games under new boss Ernesto Valverde and is an integral member under his set up.
Although has signed a new contract, he would be another good option for the Blues to consider.
The Brazilian moved to Manchester City from Real Madrid this season but was a big target for Chelsea throughout. He was a big money move but has failed to replace Kyle Walker at the top. He is currently in the first team owing to the injury of their first choice left-back but is likely to make way for Benjamin Mendy next season. This would mean that Danilo would once again have to play back-up and Chelsea could provide him with a move by promising him first-team football on a regular basis.
