Chelsea: a strong first choice for Pochettino?


In pole position to take over from Frank Lampard on the Blues bench, Mauricio Pochettino is already working on his future team.

Mauricio Pochettino, PSG

The interim of Frank Lampard could probably not start worse. Since replacing Graham Potter, the Blues’ all-time top scorer has lost all five games he has managed, his men managing to score just one goal. This Wednesday, it was Brentford who came to rule Stamford Bridge by winning 2-0 as part of the 33rd day of the Premier League.

Lampard’s ordeal will end in five games, since the English technician already knows his successor: Mauricio Pochettino. The Argentinian’s arrival has not yet been formalized, but the former PSG coach has given his agreement to owner Todd Boehly and is already starting to work on the outlines of the 2023-24 workforce. The English press has also obtained some information in this direction.

Pochettino counts on Lukaku and wants to recruit in Brentford

Indeed, the first strong decision of the former PSG coach would be to give Romelu Lukaku another chance. The Sun. Loaned to Inter Milan this season, the Belgian has played 27 games in all competitions, for 9 goals and 3 assists, but the Nerazzurri do not want to keep him at the end of the season. To put him in the best conditions, Pochettino would have asked that the club retain Joao Felix, on loan from Atlético. Negotiations will therefore have to take place with the people of Madrid about the Portuguese.

Added to that, the future Chelsea coach is also eyeing the Premier League, and more specifically the side of Brentford to strengthen the team. Still according to the tabloid, the Argentinian appreciates the profile of Ivan Toney, author of 19 league goals this season, but also of his teammate and goalkeeper David Raya, author of a new very good performance against the Blues this Wednesday.

After having recruited for no less than 600 million euros in one year, the expenses do not seem ready to stop for the Londoners.
