Enzo Maresca pushing Chelsea to sign Jules Kounde, Raphinha

Enzo Maresca reportedly wants Chelsea to sign Barcelona duo Jules Kounde and Raphinha in the summer transfer window.

According to Fichajes, incoming Chelsea manager Enzo Maresca wants the West London club to sign Raphinha and Jules Kounde during the summer transfer window.

Both players have been linked with a move to Chelsea in recent months. The Blues could certainly use more quality in their squad, and the Barcelona duo could prove to be quality additions.

Chelsea will need to add more quality to the attacking unit. They have been overly dependent on Cole Palmer this season, and Raphinha will add goals and creativity to the side. He is versatile enough to operate on both flanks as well.

The Brazilian international has played in the Premier League before with Leeds United, and he will be able to settle in quickly and make an instant impact at Stamford bridge. Barcelona are going through financial difficulties, and they could accept an offer for him if a suitable amount is offered.

Chelsea could use Jules Kounde

Chelsea will have to improve defensively as well. Kounde has shown his quality in La Liga, and he could be the ideal long term replacement for Thiago Silva at Chelsea. It will be interesting to see if the two players are keen on a move to the West London club. Chelsea will not be able to provide them with Champions League football next season.

However, the Blues have a talented squad, and they might be able to push for trophies in next year. Chelsea have the financial muscle to convince Barcelona as well. It will be interesting to see how the situation unfolds. The Blues need quality players like Raphinha and Kounde if they want to compete with clubs like Arsenal and Manchester City.

Although they have changed managers, they will need to improve their squad as well. They should look to bring in a quality midfield controller who will help them control the tempo of the game. It remains to be seen whether Chelsea can bring in the right additions during the summer transfer window and bounce back strongly next season.
