Chelsea are some way off mounting a genuine title challenge, here are five young talents who can help bring the Premier League trophy back to the Stamford Bridge.
5. Luke Shaw
At just 17, Southampton full-back Luke Shaw is destined to become one of the Premier Leagues greats over the coming years and Chelsea should be ensuring that those days are at Stamford Bridge.
Shaw has been a revelation with his performances for Southampton having been entrusted to begin the Premier League season in the first-team by former manager. And he is reported to have been the subject of a £10million bid from Chelsea in the January transfer window.
Although Ashley Cole has signed a new one-year deal to stay at Chelsea for another season, Shaw is the club’s future left-back and can help form part of a new era when the current Stamford Bridge number three retires of leaves. He should also replace him in the England team eventually too.
