While, in truth, the Chelsea squad taken over by Antonio Conte didn’t require an awful lot of surgery in the transfer market, the work the Italian has done on that front has clearly helped them to what looks like being a fifth Premier League title.
The Blues have enjoyed a stellar campaign under his stewardship this season and the arrival of N’Golo Kante over the course of the summer has been waxed poetic about for months now. So, taking the industrious Frenchman as read, who do fans think has been their best signing thus far?
Eyebrows were raised when David Luiz was brought back to west London on Deadline Day, though the Brazilian has helped form a wonderfully solid three-man defence since returning. Elsewhere, Marcos Alonso seemed like a rather uninspiring signing at left-back, but the Spaniard looks a completely different man to the one who failed to wholly convince at both Bolton and Sunderland.
Life in SW6 has proved difficult for Michy Batshuayi, however the Belgian could be in for a first-team berth should Diego Costa leave over the summer.
So, outside of Kante, who has been your Chelsea signing of the season?
