Happy New Year to all our followers, as we start the year with the opening of the January transfer window.
It looks as though Chelsea will be ready to pounce on Everton’s Ross Barkley, to resume where the Blues left off in August, and also bring in another left wing-back for Marcos Alonso to have competition.
Juventus’ Alex Sandro and Monaco’s Thomas Lemar are the names that spring into mind when thinking about the possible and most desirable transfers for Chelsea.
Antonio Conte will almost certainly be pushing for January reinforcements, with a tough fixture list coming up including all four competitions – Champions League, FA Cup, League Cup and Premier League.
Possible signings: Ross Barkley (Everton), Thomas Lemar (Monaco), Alex Sandro (Juventus), Philipp Max (Augsburg), Alex Telles (Porto).
Possible outgoings: Charly Musonda, David Luiz, Michy Batshuayi.
