The lack of goals last season detracted from another area of weakness last season, their defence. Another defender is needed and someone like Nathan Ake fits the bill perfectly whilst also having the versatility to play in midfield of at left-back if needed.
The young Dutchman is highly rated back at Stamford Bridge and has been involved in some of Mourinho’s squads later in the season. Should he be made available for a loan deal, Norwich should look to use him to add some extra quality in their defence that was so error prone last season. His ability to play with the ball at his feet is something dramatically lacking from the Canaries defence and with the added incentive of his ability to play in different positions, he should be a genuine target for Neil Adams.
