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.”
