Jack Grealish is the man to fill an imaginative void that Chelsea have failed to address since Eden Hazard departed Stamford Bridge, says Blues legend Alan Hudson.
A Belgian playmaker swapped west London for Real Madrid throughout the summer transfer window of 2019.
At the time, Chelsea were prevented from dipping into the market for an appropriate replacement by a two-window recruitment embargo, however that has since been lifted, with Frank Lampard ready to bolster his ranks as he sees fit.
Another striker is taken into account to top the Blues’ wish list at the moment, however there are different areas in need of reinforcement.
Further creative thinking within the final third would be most welcome, with Chelsea troubled to see out games that they dominate.
Grealish can be the person to step into Hazard’s shoes once it involves providing aforementioned inspiration , with the 24-year-old Aston Villa star having shown this season that he’s over capable of competing with the Premier League elite.
Hudson would be in favour of a move for the
England hopeful, with a person who spent 5 years with Chelsea at the beginning of his playing career – savouring European Cup Winners’ Cup success on the way – telling CaughtOffside of Grealish: “I am his biggest fan.
“Grealish is the biggest offensive midfield player within the game at this moment.
“A player who goes past individuals and scores goals.”
The former midfielder added: “The bottom line is Chelsea haven’t got anyone since Hazard left who has the fans on the sting of their seats.
“Jack Grealish would be that man.”
While talking up a raid on a domestic rival for an additional match-winner, Hudson believes that Chelsea have gotten the right man at the helm to piece along a competitive squad and oversee future success.
“Frank Lampard was positively the right appointment,” he said.
“Although I do believe he ought to have a more experienced sidekick, an recent head, to bounce off once things aren’t going his way.”
Jody Morris is Lampard’s chief assistant at present, with the previous Blues team-mates trying to guide Chelsea to a top-four end and through to the latter stages of fa Cup and Champions League competition.
