The Pride of London detail and explain Chelsea’s January transfer plans, going on recent information from trustworthy journalists and outlets.

Hopefully this article will give Blues fans some much-needed hope as they take a break from domestic football. The World Cup takes over now, but the west London club will be planning their next moves on and off the field of play – and you can bet on that.

Actually, the poor run of results of late – CFC have not won in five Premier League matches, I know, that really bad succession really crept up on everyone – may be a blessing in disguise. Bear with me here, you see, wheels are already be in motion for a move or two in the New Year. But shortcomings on the pitch are a wake up call to the head coach, recruitment chiefs and hierarchy alike.

So a transfer blueprint – excuse the rather neat but unintentional pun, there – will have been drawn up already. And, as always, The Pride of London back their views with facts or information from the best sources, and there is no exception on this occasion. Fabrizio Romano recently confirmed that the Stamford Bridge outfit are, as usual, on the look out in advance of the first 2023 market opening for business.

Romano believes Chelsea shall ‘try to find opportunities’ in Jan’, which is typical. He opines further that, after a busy summer, the Blues ‘must be smart now’. Furthermore, the Italian suggests that Graham Potter’s side probably need a right-back, but are in no rush to find a suitable target.

Some of the names linked with a transfer to Chelsea

Other reporters, such as Matt Law, have constantly asserted that Todd Boehly will fund a search for an elite midfielder, especially with uncertainty surrounding Jorginho’s and N’Golo Kante’s respective futures on Fulham Road. But which names are attributed with potential switches to Chels’?

Well, Romano has talked of Blues interest in Endrick of Palmeiras; the youngster has a €60million release clause. West Ham United’s Declan Rice and Jude Bellingham of Borussia Dortmund are persistent mentions. Even a free for Liverpool man Naby Keita has been touted. Arsen Zakharyan from Dynamo Moscow is another one connected with Chelsea.

With regard to rightbacks, Denzel Dumfries of Inter Milan is the star who shines brightest and longest. Further candidates to join Graham Potter’s team include Lyon’s Malo Gusto and Jeremie Frimpong, who plays for Bayer Leverkusen.
