5 midfielders who could replace Jorginho at Chelsea

Sports, News

Jorginho joined Chelsea in the summer of 2018. He went on to become an important player in the Blues squad.

The Italian national team player has helped Chelsea win a number of titles. That includes the Champions League trophy last season.

However, it is important to note that Jorginho is now 30 years old. He is now about to enter the final chapter of his career.

Jorginho’s contract with Chelsea will expire in 2023. The Blues will probably sell him in the summer unless the player signs a new contract.

Several top European clubs have been linked with Jorginho. Therefore, Chelsea must start looking for a replacement for the former Napoli player.

Billy Gilmour
Billy Gilmour is a Chelsea academy graduate. However, the 20-year-old midfielder is still struggling to find a place in the Blues’ midfield because it is filled with many quality players.

Therefore, Chelsea decided to loan Gilmour to another club to get more playing opportunities. Gilmour is currently on loan with Norwich City.

Gilmour has played 22 games in all competitions with two assists for the Canaries. Chelsea may not need to buy a new midfielder if they decide to repatriate Gilmour.

Aurelien Tchouameni
Aurelien Tchouameni joined AS Monaco after transferring from Bordeaux in 2020. He has surpassed expectations at the French club and has become one of the main stars there.

Tchouameni has appeared in 85 games and has scored six goals and provided six assists in all competitions. He has also received a call to strengthen the French national team.

Thanks to his slick appearance, Tchouameni has become a transfer target for several European giants. Chelsea have been watching him for a long time and have been linked with a move for the Frenchman recently.

Yves Bissouma
Over the last few seasons, Yves Bissouma has established himself as one of the best defensive midfielders in the Premier League. He has been playing for Brighton & Hove Albion since 2018.

The Mali international can play several positions in midfield. Bissouma has shown he can play as a defensive midfielder or a box-to-box midfielder.

Thanks to his consistent appearance, Bissouma is reportedly interested in a number of Premier League clubs. With his experience in the highest tier of English football, he could be a great addition to Chelsea’s midfield.

Gavi
Gavi is one of the players who dropped out of the Barcelona academy, La Masia. The player was promoted by Ronald Koeman to the Barcelona first team this season.

Slowly but surely, the midfielder was able to appear regularly in the El Blaugrana main squad. Even this 17-year-old player is also a mainstay in the midfield of the Spanish national team made by Luis Enrique.

Gavi has played 33 matches in all competitions with Barcelona. He was able to contribute two goals and five assists from these appearances.

Declan Rice
Declan Rice initially studied at the Chelsea academy. The Englishman was released at the age of 14 and later joined West Ham.

Rice is now one of the best midfielders in the Premier League. He is expected to join a bigger club this summer.

Manchester United and Chelsea are reportedly fighting for Rice’s signature. However, the 23-year-old will not leave London Stadium on the cheap.
