Although, as we’ve stressed many a time already this season, Chelsea, under Frank Lampard, are a work on progress, one area of the side definitely looks as if it needs improving.
Sadly, although Chelsea look exceptional going forward, moving the ball quickly and with purpose, they continue to look vulnerable in defence.
Naturally, we’re all hoping that the return, from injury, of Antonio Rudiger will help to ease the problem.
However, with the transfer window ban now ended, is January the time to bring in a top-notch defender to assist us in our quest to finish in the top-four of the Premier League?
Yesterday, Sunday, The Telegraph were of the opinion that steps are being taken to do just that with, possibly, a familiar face set to return to Stamford Bridge.
The player in question is Bournemouth’s Dutch international defender, Nathan Ake.
Ake, since leaving Chelsea, has developed into a top-class centre-back and our referenced source is adamant that Chelsea are looking to trigger a buy-back clause in the 24-year-olds contract.
Naturally, questions will be asked as to why Chelsea ever let Ake leave the club, but would you welcome a return to Stamford Bridge for the defender?
