A recent report from Spain has suggested that Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel is eager to work with Southampton midfielder James Ward-Prowse.
Tuchel likes Ward-Prowse
James Ward-Prowse is a product of the Southampton Academy and has so far devoted his entire career to his books.
In that time, the 26-year-old has become an integral member of the Saints team, with his dead ball ability being a particular bright spot.
The midfielder has scored 35 and assisted 42 in all Saints competitions and is now their captain. Ward-Prowse’s impressive displays of recent times have also seen him win multiple calls from England, though he eventually missed out on the final team at Euro 2020.
Regardless, the Englishman is now one of Southampton’s biggest players and, as mentioned above, he seems to be piquing the interest of Chelsea manager Thomas Tuchel.
Spanish outlet Transfers write on Wednesday that:
James Ward-Prowse is the player Thomas Tuchel would give his all to work with.
The report adds that Ward-Prowse’s price is around 50 million euros.
Should Chelsea sign Ward-Prowse?
However, should Chelsea try to make a move for the Southampton man?
After Saul Niguez’s poor start to life in England, as well as the fact that N’Golo Kante is advancing in years and becoming more injury-prone, it seems only fitting that the Blues would add another central midfielder to their ranks.
However, Londoners already have two perfectly good options to side with.
Both Conor Gallagher and Billy Gilmour have been loaned by Chelsea this season to Crystal Palace and Norwich.
Gallagher is currently having a more successful campaign, which is not surprising given that Norwich is at the bottom of the PL.
But if Gallagher can maintain his current form in 2021/22, why doesn’t Chelsea give the Palace loan a chance to impress at Stamford Bridge next season rather than sign another player?
