Journalist Dominic Fifield has claimed Hirving Lozano is just the type of player that Chelsea need in the squad right now.
Despite having some of the best creative players in the Premier League, there has been a lot of speculation in the media over the past few days which have all suggested that Maurizio Sarri is desperate to splash the cash and bring Mexican winger Lozano to the Premier League.
With speculation surrounding the long-term futures of Willian and Pedro, who are both over the age of thirty and coming towards the back-end of their careers, Sarri knows he needs to add a fresher, younger winger to the squad as possible long-term replacements for the duo.
Reports have claimed that we have submitted an offer for the star, believed to be around the £45 million mark and Fifield has claimed that Lozano is just the type of player that we need, as they need younger, fresher wingers.
On the Football Writers podcast, Fifieid said “Lozano to Chelsea? Well they do need wingers, I mean Pedro and Willian, they’re in their 30s and contracts expire in 2020, I believe.
“(Callum) Hudson-Odoi is obviously 2020 as well and is likely to leave sooner rather than later.
. “But whether those guys are able to play the style that Sarri wants them to, no-one knows.”
Would Lozano be a good signing for Chelsea?
Moving from PSV to us would be a massive step up for Lozano as the Premier League is at a much higher standard than the Dutch League, but for the right price he could be an immediate replacement for Willian or Pedro.
Would we welcome the signing of Lozano?
