Scouting For Chelsea: Three Possible January Replacement For Ashley Cole

Three Left backs Chelsea need this January Transfer Window

As I write this, Chelsea are a goal up against Swansea at Stamford Bridge and looking good to hold on for yet another home win under Jose Mourinho. As the game withers on, the more I believe Ashley Cole’s time is well and truly over and is past his sell by date by a country mile. Recent form suggests that he is no longer the rock in the left back position as he once was and Jose Mourinho would want a new left back who can fill in his starting eleven place in the side. What Chelsea need is someone who is equally capable of defending in the left flank and also is willing to run the extra mile for his team. As Mourinho looks to his options come the January Transfer window, which is imminent in a matter of days, we here at Soccersouls provide Mourinho the options to choose from in the Transfer Market.

1. Fabio Coentrao

The Portuguese has fallen down the pecking order for the Spanish Giants Real Madrid, thanks to Marcelo inspired run of form over the past season and this running campaign as well. So, Coentrao will surely find Chelsea as more than an attractive option. Moreover he would also love to get on the pitch and give himself more game time ahead of next year’s showcase World Cup in Brazil. While the fiscal ramification for Coentrao is still unknown, Mourinho albeit his cash available and the need to strengthen his squad for a major title challenge in the second half of the season.
