How Chelsea could line up if Graham Potter gets top transfer targets Jude Bellingham and Leandro Trossard in overhaul | The Sun

GRAHAM POTTER is looking to mould Chelsea in his image with the likes of Jude Bellingham and Leandro Trossard among his top transfer targets.

The Englishman, 47, took over at Stamford Bridge from Thomas Tuchel following a £253million summer spending spree.

Big money signings included Wesley Fofana from Leicester City and Marc Cucurella from Brighton.

Money was also spent on snapping up serial Premier League winner Raheem Sterling and defender Kalidou Koulibaly.

Despite working with a squad he inherited, Potter has got off to a good start to life at Chelsea.

After ten games managed, he has six wins, three draws and one loss.

In fact, his first defeat came against former club Brighton, who stuck four past the Blues with Kai Havertz pulling one back for Potter's men.

Trossard scored in the demolition of Chelsea, and it may boost his chances of joining Potter at Stamford Bridge.

The Belgium star, 27, has a contract at the Seagulls until the end of the season.

He can either walk out for a smaller fee in January, or seal a summer free transfer.

Potter reportedly wants the £30m man as a wing-back option.

Chelsea have tried the likes of Sterling, Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Christian Pulisic on the flank of a five-man defence in recent weeks following an injury to Reece James.

But once James returns, Trossard could play just ahead of him on the right.

James could then play alongside Thiago Silva and Cucurella in a back three with Ben Chilwell on the left.

Trossard would also provide good attacking support for Mason Mount, Sterling and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang.

Significant changes in midfield could also be coming in the next transfer window or two.

The Blues very much remain interested in Borussia Dortmund and England wonderkid Jude Bellingham.

The 19-year-old has taken another step up in his career by captaining Dortmund on a number of occasions this season.

He is also a nailed-on starter for Gareth Southgate's Three Lions at the winter World Cup in Qatar.

Bellingham has also notched a number of important Champions League goals this term.
