3. Geoffrey Kondogbia
The French powerhouse has grown disillusioned with life at Inter Milan as he has struggled to get regular game time this term. And with the team going through an extremely low phase, it is natural that he is looking for a move away and Chelsea, who have been linked with the player, could capitalize on the former Monaco midfielder’s situations.
Kondogbia has only featured 9 times in the Serie A this season for the Nerazzurri and has no goals and one assist to his name. However, despite the ins and outs from the team, the 23-year old has impressed each time he has been called upon. A pass success rate of 88%, and a dribbling success percentage of 86 highlight his impressive abilities with the ball at his feet. Having made 12 successful interceptions and tackles each, he has shown his defensive nous and game awareness and given a constant run, can develop into a key player for the team.
A versatile midfielder, adept at playing as a centre-back and left-back, Kondogbia is another player in the mould of Conte’s ideal midfielder. His dribbling abilities, combined with his eye for a pass and the aggressive tackling could provide the perfect balance for the Blues in the midfield.
