Chelsea have three Zakaria alternatives

Chelsea have three alternatives under consideration if they decide to cut short the loan of Denis Zakaria in January.

The Swiss international arrived late in the summer transfer window after the club failed to secure any of its desired midfield targets,, but, so far, he has failed to play a single minute for the West London side.

Whilst Graham Potter insists that he is part of his plans, and no decision has yet been made about his future, the evidence suggests otherwise, and Zakaria may be a victim of the change of regime at Stamford Bridge.

Instead, the club are likely to try and strengthen in the middle of the park in January, especially as it is not known when N’Golo Kanté will return to full fitness again.

Among the names under consideration are Edson Alvarez of Ajax, Ibrahim Sangate of PSV Eindhoven, and Southampton’s Romeo Lavia.

Given that Chelsea are previously reported to have bids for all three turned down in the summer, there appears to be some credibility to these links.
