Why Chelsea Should Be Bent On Signing De Jong Especially After Jorginho's Performance Against Everto

After Sunday's match against Everton, it is abundantly clear that Tuchel has a considerable amount of work to do in order to enhance Chelsea's position in the middle of the field. This is particularly obvious in light of the fact that Chelsea lost the match. Because Kante is now playing more of a position similar to that of a number 8, Chelsea are in desperate need of a defensive midfielder who is also capable of playing in a role similar to that of a number 4.

As more time has passed, Jorginho's ability to successfully fulfill the responsibilities of that function has become less effective. Tuchel has taken note of Everton's ability to maintain such a strong level of control over the middle third of the pitch, particularly in the first half of the game. Throughout the first half an hour of the match, this was the most noticeable trend that emerged. As a consequence of this, Chelsea need to make a substantial move in the near future to get Frenkie de Jong from Barcelona so that they may play the two of them together in the same team.

It is not completely out of the question for De Jong to play the position of the number four player. He can be counted on to make tackles, and he has the potential to set up scoring opportunities for his side with the passes that he makes. In addition to this, both of Jorginho's only two skills—keeping possession of the ball and creating openings for his teammates—are ones that he possesses, and he is able to do both of these things. Jorginho's only two skills are keeping possession of the ball and creating openings for his teammates. If the Blues were to sign De Jong, it would be a significant advance for the squad in the direction that they should be heading. It would seem that Chelsea are on the verge of concluding the transaction to obtain the services of the midfielder since they have indicated that they are interested in doing so, and it is likely just a matter of time until they do so.
