A new Centre-back for depth in defence.

Everyone who has seen at least 10 Chelsea game this season will be able to work out that Chelsea need a new centre-back in order for them to really challenge for the EPL Title and re-assert dominance in Europe, so in this article i have outlined 2 defenders who are realistic targets for Chelsea and won't cost in excess of 15 million pounds.

1) Mehdi Benatia

This man is my personal favourite, he is a 26 (Just ) year old Morrocan who plays for Udinese in Serie A, He is an absolute wall with great timing and awareness and is also very strong and good in the air standing at 6 foot 2. Benatia would be available for less than 15 million and has issued a come get me plea to the big premier league teams, why not?

2) N'Koulou

N'koulou is a 23 year old Cameroonian who plays for Marseilles in the French Ligue 1, he is very fast for a Centre-back (Much like Luiz) and is a bit more of a mobile unit than Benatia, however he is also very defensively capable and would be a good partner to Luiz, to atone for his inevitable errors throughout the season, He has been for me the stand out defender in the French league this season and is only really bettered by Thiago silva who has had injury problems but has performed admirably throughout.

Both of these defenders will be available this summer and both are young with some potential to still develop, so who would you choose out of the two or would you buy a different centre-back (Hummels, Pepe, Subotic etc.) Vote below in the poll :D

P.S. First ever serious fan post so yeah sorry if it sucked :)
