Revealed: Chelsea’s plan for the rest of the January transfer window

The Blues remain in the transfer market despite their extravagant spending so far


Chelsea remain on the hunt for additions this January despite their massive spending so far, with two more targets on the horizon for the Blues before the winter transfer window closes.

The club have already added three new faces this January, with Benoit Badiashile joining from Monaco and Joao Felix arriving on loan from Atletico Madrid. Meanwhile, they have also hijacked Arsenal’s bid for Mykhaylo Mudryk, striking a 100m euro deal to land the Ukrainian talent, with Mudryk set to be unveiled at Stamford Bridge ahead of their clash with Crystal Palace.

It continues on from a summer which saw record spending, with the likes of Wesley Fofana, Kalidou Koulibaly, Marc Cucurella and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang all arrive in west London.

But, they are not yet done, with CBS reporting that the club are targetting two more additions before the end of January, with Brighton midfielder Moises Caicedo one of those on Todd Boehly’s transfer list.

The Ecuadorian has been the centre of speculation in recent months, with Liverpool also thought to be keen on his services amid their woeful form. However, Brighton are thought to be ready to demand £75m for the talent, which would make him the second most expensive midfielder to move to a Premier League club (after Paul Pogba’s switch to Manchester United).

Chelsea have already failed to add a midfielder this winter, with a deal for Enzo Fernandez proving impossibly expensive as Benfica demanded the full 120m euro release clause for the Argentine star.

Beyond Caicedo, it is also thought that the blues are on the hunt for a right back, with Denzel Dumfries and Jeremie Frimpong having previously been mooted as targets.

With the club currently in freefall, Boehly seems set to continue trying to spend his way out.
