Chelsea boss Mauricio Pochettino has been given greater part in club’s transfer business, according to reports in the media.
The Argentine was appointed Chelsea boss at the beginning of this season and his project look a young exciting one. There is more believe that Pochettino will further buy young players and even under the guidance of Chelsea officials led by owner Todd Boehly.
However, reports in London suggest that Mauricio Pochettino will be given more control in Chelsea’s transfer business in January and the former PSG boss will purchase experienced players.
“The good thing is the relationship and communication is very good with the sporting directors and owners,” Pochettino said. “When the transfer window was closed I said I need to be more involved now in all the decisions. I have started to work to identify what we need for January.”
Chelsea, who are 14th in the Premier League before visiting Fulham on Monday, have struggled for goals and their attack has suffered from Christopher Nkunku sustaining a serious knee injury during pre-season.
“Football is very dynamic and it is about the present always,” Pochettino said. “Things can change until January. We need to work to recover Nkunku and Armando Broja to try to provide the team with more goals and become solid. But, of course, we have already started to work [on transfers].”
Chelsea could be without 11 players against Fulham and Pochettino said he was concerned Ben Chilwell’s hamstring injury was serious. The left-back is awaiting the results of a scan after limping off during the win over Brighton in the Carabao Cup.
“The doctor told me it’s not a good thing, it looks a bad injury,” Pochettino said. “We need to assess in the next few days and we will see the period he will be absent. It doesn’t look good.”
