Mauricio Pochettino has told Chelsea to bring in players who are established in the Premier League ahead of the 2023–24 campaign.
The summer transfer window will return in June, and Frank Lampard will see out his brief tenure as the club’s interim boss.
All business has been concluded for Pochettino to take over at Stamford Bridge, as he has accepted all conditions of the long-term deal.
The Argentine manager has reportedly placed a lot of importance on securing players who are Premier League-proven.
CBS Sports journalist Ben Jacobs, providing an update on the Blues’ strategy in the upcoming summer transfer window, told GivemeSport:
“The other thing that Pochettino has emphasised is that Premier League-proven quality is really important.
“But then the January window, although there was a strategy, was very much youth-based. They weren’t afraid to bring in players from all over the world.
“Malo Gusto came in from Lyon; Andre Santos, the Brazilian; and Enzo Fernandez, from Argentina. They signed Mudryk, who had played in the Champions League but again had no Premier League experience.”
