Saul Niguez joined Chelsea on a season long loan on the very last day of the summer transfer window in a dramatic fashion.
According to reports, Chelsea would pay £30million if they want to sign Niguez permanently after his loan spell expires in 2022.
Speaking after making his move to Chelsea, Saul Niguez said: “I am very excited to start this new challenge with Chelsea.
Blues fans, I am one of you now and I can’t wait to wear the shirt, start training and see all of you”.
Saul Niguez will challenge Jorginho, Kante, Kovacic, Chalobah, and Mason Mount for a place in Thomas Tuchel’s lineup.
How would Saul Niguez fit in Thomas Tuchel’s plan?
Saul Niguez is considered to be one of the most talented midfielders in Europe.
During his time at Athletico Madrid, he played as a Central Midfielder and Defensive Midfielder.
However, Thomas Tuchel might just decide to play him as an attacker. Saul Niguez could be deployed alongside Mason Mount and Romelu Lukaku.
