THE BIGGER PICTURE: Not only would Mac Allister be reunited with Potter, but he would also play alongside Albiceleste team-mate Enzo Fernandez. The Young Player of the Tournament in Qatar signed for the Blues on deadline day in a British record deal, and has started every game since the move. Mac Allister's transfer could come in a summer that will represent another mass overhaul in Chelsea's squad.
AND WHAT'S MORE: In midfield, academy graduate Mason Mount is yet to sign a new deal, with Liverpool and Manchester United reportedly waiting in the wings. Elsewhere in that position, football.london writes that the Blues have earmarked Declan Rice and Romeo Lavia as other potential options, although the latter could be poised for a return to Manchester City. Furthermore, the situation regarding Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang remains unresolved, and the Blues could even face competition for Joao Felix.
