Former Chelsea footballer Ashley Cole has warned the Blues fans they must be patient to see the best from their newcomers.
Chelsea have welcomed several new faced over the summer transfer window including Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner, Kai Havertz as well as Thiago Silva, Malang Sarr and Ben Chilwell.
The Blues are also expecting to welcome goalkeeper Edouard Mendy from Rennes.
“How much quality they have there is frightening and exciting at the same time,” Cole told Sky Sports. “Yes, we’ve added loads of quality into the team,” said Cole.
“With Thiago Silva, we’ve added experience as well.
“We’re going to have to be patient at times to wait for them to gel. It’s definitely looking way more exciting than it was towards the late stage of last season.”
“He’s a very, very high quality player,” Cole said of Havertz.
“It was his first game against Brighton where he had just two days of training with the team, so it’s tough.
“He’s just finding his feet, getting into the team, understanding the way Frank wants to play, but we’re definitely going to see great things from this guy because he’s such a great talent.”
