Andre Villa-Boas: Two More Signings Needed, Nasri Is Exciting

Chelsea boss Andre Villa-Boas wants to bring in a central midfielder and a winger before the end of the transfer window.

The Portuguese tactician has been heavily linked with Tottenham’s Luka Modric and despite being an admirer of the 33-year old he admits there are other targets.

“I think we might add in those positions – we might,” he said on strengthening his midfield. “The sense of urgency in midfield is there.

“We play 4-3-3, we have a squad of 25. For you to prepare for a game, you need at least six midfielders. We only have four.

“But we have the versatility of (Florent) Malouda, for example, and Yossi (Benayoun), who we have been using in the 10 and the eight position to a very, very good extent and a very good level.”

AVB was again quizzed on the potential arrival of Luka Modric, but the Chelsea boss also took the time to admit he is monitoring the situation of Arsenal’s Samir Nasri:

“I just explained to you the sense of urgency in midfield. But it doesn’t mean that it’s Luka.

“Not that I’m interested, but you have (Samir) Nasri terminating contract.

“He’s one of the most exciting players in the Premier League and that’s the reality, as well as Luka, as well as other players.”

    any of these – neymar , hazard , nasri , gotze , mata , modric , moutinho , hopefully 2 of these ! but im not getting my hopes up anymore like i have been since the last game of the season ! id make neymar & hazard primary targets for left wing/forward position so we got a great young front 3 with torres & sturridge !

    that is exactly wat we need neymar and modric or sniedjer or may be nasri but only neymar has the flexibility and skills chelsea need gud with either modric or sniedjer or probably nasri which this deals must be done ontime 2 weeks and transfer window is over we av to get dis guys all less we go with nothing again torres needs help noticed kalou and malouda dont pass d ball to him.

    kalou is pathetic, drogba egoistic, malouda selfish anelka finished product. please AVB bringing in young exciting midfeilders to add speed to our attack. drogba and his gang would struggle with fast attacking teams like man u and arsenal and now man city.

    AVB should have seen how man city played tonight,then I am sure he will know that we need more than 2 signings.he also needs to get rid of the scouts we have at chelsea.they are not good at identifying good players..send lampard and moluoda even kalou away and buy fast players

    Man City has certainly found a new bag of tricks in Aguero. The moment he hit the pitch yesterday everything changed. While Chelsea is bogged down with more of the same; City has proof that one specialized player can make the difference. So what’s the answer for Chelsea? We need someone who plays wide as a winger, but can also cut in and unlock defences. Someone who can provide a final killer pass but is accurate when called on to shoot. AVB; it’s obvious; we are talking about Neymar.

    why is chelseafc dull in making decisions but quick in sacking coaches instead of visiting the root of the problem didier, lampard, kaluo and mauldo are causing more harm than gud. when u bench them problem u play them they play rubbish. pls AVB buy us nymar, modric and nasri and get tripple or u face being sacked mark my words. u do the right thing and make us hapi
