The rumour mill is really heating up now. There is talk of Sandro Ramirez leaving, Theo Walcott coming in. Maybe Davy Klaassen goes out on loan. Perhaps the Blues are searching everywhere for another striker. There seems to be no rhyme or reason to the rumours. What makes sense? Defenders, and a lot of them. Maybe a long-term, back up keeper? The attack seems fine; crowded even. Let Dominic Calvert-Lewin lead the line and give Sandro, Ademola Lookman and Nikola Vlasic some minutes off the bench.
