Pochettino can create the ideal Chelsea starting lineup with a savvy £10.3 million transfer of Dybala and Caicedo

By acquiring Paulo Dybala, Mauricio Pochettino might create the ideal Chelsea starting lineup. Following a few standout performances, the 29-year-old attacker has been extensively linked with a move away from Roma this summer.

Dybala, whose deal at the Stadio Olimpico expires in 2025, played 25 Serie A games for Jose Mourinho's team last season and personally assisted 19 goals. Some elite clubs in Europe are apparently interested in him as a result of his great achievements for the Italian giants, and he may be available for as little as €12 million (£10.3 million).

Chelsea are reportedly mulling a move for Dybala, who has explicitly been sought by Pochettino, according to Italian journalist Matteo De Santis, who was quoted by RomaPress. According to the survey, Roma are unconcerned by the Blues' interest and continued confidence in keeping him during the upcoming year.

After just two significant transfers, football.london has looked at how the Blues might line up under Pochettino.


Pochettino is renowned for taking a progressive stance. He has consistently chosen a 4-2-3-1 over other formations throughout the years, which looks like a 4-3-3 while attacking and a 4-4-2 when defending.


Kepa has had trouble making an impression since joining Chelsea for a world record transfer fee a few years ago, despite occasional glimpses of brilliance. But Pochettino appears to be pleased with the Spaniard for the time being, therefore the Blues are putting other transactions first.


Next season, Ben Chilwell is anticipated to be favoured at left-back, with Reece James serving as his counterpart on the right. Levi Colwill, Benoit Badishile, Wesley Fofana, and Thiago Silva are just a few of the possibilities Pochettino has at center-half.


Enzo Fernandez will finally be able to fill the No. 8 position if Chelsea can pair him with Caicedo. The South American pair can act as a double pivot and sit behind Nicolas Jackson, who will probably be the only striker being supported by Christopher Nkunku.

In the absence of the Frenchman, Dybala may step in and perform a similar function. Mykhailo Mudryk is anticipated to be used as a left-side outlet for the wingers.

The 22-year-old is up against Raheem Sterling, who is a fierce rival. Noni Madueke is a very capable option on the right, but the addition of Dybala would undoubtedly complicate matters.


For several years now, Chelsea has been in desperate need of a potent striker. Only Olivier Giroud has come close to succeeding in replacing Didier Drogba and Diego Costa for the Blues.

Pochettino will have access to Nicolas Jackson and Armando Broja for the upcoming campaign. Even though Dybala would likely prefer a center position of some kind, it's unlikely that he will unseat Nkunku from the No. 10 position or either of the aforementioned top-two scorers in the unexpected lineup.


Ben Chilwell, Levi Colwill, Wesley Nicholas Jackson; Mykhailo Mudryk; Reece James; Enzo Fernandez; Moises Caicedo; Christopher Nkunku; Paulo Dybala; Fofana.
