Three players that can aid Chelsea's title challenge

In Chelsea's eyes, it could be seen that they've already made their biggest signing this summer by re-instating Jose Mourinho as their manager and they will hope he can bring back the glory days to Stamford Bridge with the Premier League title

The Portuguese patriot has added four new faces to an already improving squad, the fresh faces coming in the shape of Andrea Shurrle, Marco van Ginkel, Mark Schwarzer and Cristian Cuevas.

Van Ginkel and Cuevas are both young, talented players and ones certainly for the future, and with Cuevas heading to Van Ginkel's former club Vitesse Arnhem on loan for the season, perhaps Jose has plans involving the Dutch starlet for the campaign.

Mark Schwarzer has been brought in as a back up 'keeper should the ever exceptional Petr Cech succumb to injury, as well as the fact that they had released Hilario and Ross Turnbull whilst loaning out Thibaut Courtois back for a third stint at Athletico Madrid.

Schurrle, however, seems to be the only player brought in to make a difference to the squad, despite not starting in Chelsea's opening day fixture against Hull City.

The first player that could give them a boost is Borussia Dortmund centre-half Mats Hummels.

With David Luiz being adapted into some sort of defensive midfield player, that is a threat going forward as well, John Terry not getting any younger and with Branislav Ivanovic playing at right-back a lot of the time, it means Chelsea need a solid centre-back to partner Gary Cahill. Who better than the young German to bolster the defensive ranks at the Bridge?

Another player that could add another dimension to Chelsea's already exceptional midfield, which is arguably the strongest in the Premier League, is Anzhi Makhachkala's Brazilian winger Willian.

Reports circled that he would be moving to London rivals Tottenham Hotspur for a fee of around £30 million.

It was then revealed that he had chosen to join Chelsea instead, notably for the chance of Champions League football rather than Europa League with Anzhi or Spurs. An already packed midfield maybe, but what's one more Brazilian to add to the talent?

Lastly, and this could just be my opinion, but I believe that the Blues still need a player that they can rely on to score over 20 goals.

The stuttering form of Fernando Torres, the not-so-prolific form of Demba Ba and the recently returned youth of Romelu Lukaku, means Chelsea are not surplus in terms of attacking options.

All are perfectly capable of scoring when at their best but with Ba and Torres you aren't assured goals, not to mention that Lukaku, despite being a sensation for West Brom last season, has very little Champions League experience.

A clear choice for Premier League goals, for me, is Christian Benteke, but he too has no Champions League experience, so perhaps wiser is a player of Robert Lewandowski's calibre.

Young, strong and clinical, the Polish goal machine would revel at Chelsea and would only improve under Jose's reign.

Then again, Chelsea already have strength in depth and may just be strong enough for a successful first season back under The Special One, but injuries and form can constrict the squad and if The Blues start underachieving, it's Mourinho that they'll turn to.
