Bruno Guimaraes: A Risky Option for Maurizio Sarri
Chelsea will be in desperate need for midfield reinforcements this summer if they are to compete for the league title next season.
Bruno Guimaraes remains a viable target for Chelsea. The 21-year-old defensive midfielder has already impressed Chelsea scouts with his work rate, remarkable passing, and distribution, meaning that he can prove to become an ideal back-up for Jorginho.
However, Guimaraes appears to be a risky option for Chelsea. The Brazilian has made just 50 match appearances for Atletico Paranaense in all competitions and might find it difficult to integrate to the fast-tempo of the English Premier League.
Also, for a fee of £34.5 million for an inexperienced player would be too expensive for Chelsea. The Blues can shift their attention elsewhere for a more proven and experienced defensive midfielder such as William Carvalho, Adrien Rabiot, Nicolo Barella and Casemiro add depth and to reinstate stability to the midfield next season.
