The Chelsea side is currently crammed with creative talent who can sit behind the striker. Juan Mata, Eden Hazard, Oscar, Willian, Frank Lampard, Kevin de Bruyne and Marco van Ginkel can all rotate in the attacking midfield areas, but there is one man who I would suggest is perfectly designed for the Blues side. That man is Hoffenheim’s Roberto Fermino.
The 22-year-old playmaker is a remarkable talent and has set the Bundesliga alight this season with team-mate Kevin Volland. The little Brazilian has the ability to beat a man with pace, drift past him with a piece of skill or burst into areas with his intelligent movement.
His final ball is impressive, too – Firmino has already claimed eight assists in the league this term while averaging 1.7 key balls per game.
It’s his goal-scoring that has caught the eye though as the German has struck six times – more than any Chelsea player has mustered this term.
Firmino has bags of talent and is slowly establishing himself as an exciting talent in the German top tier, so to snap him up while he’s still in the process of making his name could be a shrewd move. If Jose Mourinho is looking for a club to take Kevin de Bruyne off his hands he could perhaps use the Belgian as a lure, too.
