Antonio Conte, who was given the responsibility of leading the Stamford Bridge outfit next season has already made a number of top quality additions to the squad.
The club has already completed the signing of highly-rated Belgium striker Michy Batshuayi and more recently they agreed to a five-year deal worth £150,000 a week to sign one of the best players in the Premier League last season – N’ Golo Kante.
Claudio Ranieri was not able to keep him at the club even after the high of the title victory last season but his troubles seem to not end there.
The PFA Player of the year for the previous campaign, Riyad Mahrez is supposedly next on the shopping list at Stamford Bridge.
Having scored 18 goals and provided 11 assists in 41 games for Leicester City last season, Mahrez was the chief creator in the midfield and established a great partnership with striker Jamie Vardy who rose to prominence in the last season.
Though Vardy pledged his commitment to the club by signing a new contract recently, Mahrez seems to ponder over where he wants to play next season and London seems to be the best alternative with the likes of Arsenal also scouting for his signature.
Conte will be in the Premier League for the first time and will need personnel who have settled into the English style of play to lead his side next season.
And though Ranieri recently revealed that he is not unsettled at the club, Mahrez will find an offer from Chelsea hard to refuse.
At Stamford Bridge, Mahrez will assume an important role as the winger in the side and will play almost every game under Antonio Conte.
An attacking trio of Eden Hazard, Willian and Riyad Mahrez is simply sensational but it must be seen if Mahrez can be convinced to move out of King Power this summer.
The biggest positives for the Champions of England in their fight to keep hold of their star player is their presence in the Champions League.
Chelsea is not in Europe next season and though they can attract top class talent without such attractions, Mahrez will have to think hard before leaving a club in the UCL for a club which might win it in the next few years.
If completed, this transfer may yet be the most influential this summer. Do you think Riyad Mahrez should follow Kante and move to Chelsea?
