Who will be Chelsea's new midfield destroyer? Blues' big transfer decision between Fernandez, Rice & Caicedo
Chelsea have stayed true to their Kings Road roots with their thriftless January transfer spree, but while their luxury attacking acquisitions have dominated the headlines, a new midfield enforcer is top of their shopping list.
It's no secret that it is an area of the pitch that has needed a revamp for some time, with current incumbents Jorginho, N'Golo Kante, Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek regularly struggling for either form, fitness or both.
Among the plethora of options in the shop window, three have stood out in particular - although the Blues' expensive taste means none are included in the January sales.
Chelsea seem to have honed the options down to Enzo Fernandez, Moises Caicedo and Declan Rice and, such are the funds at the disposal of their new owners, it may not even be a case of either/or.
None will come cheap, but which of the club's main midfield targets is best placed to step into Graham Potter's side?
