Chelsea eager to sign Hungarian Left Back

About Football Express India - Indian Super League - I-League

Chelsea want Milos Kerkez to be their new signing after Tosin Adarabioyo. The Blues are busy in the transfer market to bolster their squad. If they pull out this signing, it will certainly help their squad.

Why Chelsea want Milos Kerkez?

Milos Kerkez is a Hungarian full back who plays for Premier League side AFC Bournemouth. He is a decent left back with flair and physicality. Under Andoni Iraola Bournemouth has finished at 12th place in the Premier League. This is relatively a better result for Bournemouth because they used to struggle with the relegation spot in other seasons. Players like Kerkez, Solanke, Semenyo, Enes Unal have helped the Cherries to achieve a better spot in Premier League.

Details about the potential transfer

According to The Chelsea Chronicle it is being said that the young left back will cost approximately £35m. The Blues have made him the number one target in their wish list. The player is also interested for a move to Stamford Bridge in this summer transfer window. But it seems that Bournemouth won’t let him leave that much easily. They will try to keep hold of the player. They can utilize several strategies such as putting a high price tag on the player, extending his contract, etc.

Already Bournemouth has sold Kelly to Newcastle. Now they want to maintain their defence line in a stable condition.

Positive and negative sides of the transfer

First of all, he is a young player. So, it is expected that he will bring in a lot of energy into the squad. At Chelsea there are three players who can play in the left back position. The list of left back includes Marc Cucurella, Ben Chilwell and Levi Colwill. Among them Levi Colwill is a left-footed Centre back who can also play as a left back. Sometimes Marc Cucurella also plays in the midfield. We have seen it when Chelsea was managed by Mauricio Pochettino. So there is a tight competition for the left back position.

In the last Premier League game of 2023-2024 season, Chelsea faced Bournemouth at the Stamford Bridge and Blues won the match. Although Enes Unal scored a goal for Bournemouth, but players like Noni Madueke completely dominated Milos at the left hand side for the cherries.

But it is hard to imagine how Chelsea squad will transform under the new coach Enzo Maresca. The transition can happen in a good or bad way. Chelsea is trying to make a squad full of talented players. So, they are opting for players like Milos Kerkez, Jhon Duran, who have the potential to reach world-class level. As the 20 year old Hungarian has experience of English Premier League and international football, he will be certainly a good addition to the team.

Last season, in a match he defended well against Mohammed Salah. The event showcases the talent of Milos. It is clear that Chelsea want to invest for the future because they want a long-term project. That’s why they are signing young players who can develop at Chelsea.

Recent performance of the young Left back

In the last Premier League game of 2023-2024 season, Chelsea faced Bournemouth at the Stamford Bridge and Blues won the match. Although Enes Unal scored a goal for Bournemouth, but players like Noni Madueke completely dominated Milos at the left hand side for the cherries.

At this moment Chelsea need an attacking left back, who can consistently build goal-scoring opportunities from the left flank. The left back position is not as much lethal as of their right back position because players like Recce James, Malo Gusto plays at the right side. They always make forward runs and create opportunities by making crosses into the box. The same thing has to be reciprocated at the left hand side. For creating spaces, the full backs need to run behind the defender so that the midfielder can pass them a through ball.
