As the new year commences the first 2018 transfer window was opened. In this blog we go over our thoughts on players speculated to be signed by Chelsea as well as departures.

Rumours

 

Alexis Sanchez

The Chilean looks likely to depart the Emirates after experiencing a frustrating spell at the North London Club. Could Chelsea be the team to swoop in and buy the striker in a shock Premier League deal?


Arturo Vidal

Another Chilean footballer that looks to be on Antonio Conte’s list this transfer window. The Bayern Munich star has a great relationship with the Italian and Conte will be trying to prize him away from the Bundesliga giants. According to 90min.com there has been a reported offer from Chelsea for €37 million, however Bayern seem to be holding out for more money.

Departures

David Luiz

A deal is looking likely to be made for the Chelsea FC defender to Real Madrid, many reports in Spain have said that the Brazilian international has personally contacted Florentino Perez (President of Real Madrid) to try to force a move this window.

Michy Batshuayi

Antonio Conte has said that he will not stand in the way of Michy Batshuayi if he decides he wants to leave the club this transfer window. Batshuayi has started just two Premier League games this season and although not appearing to be, he must be frustrated with his lack of game time, especially when Eden Hazard is being being picked ahead of him to play up front in a false 9.
