“I CAN’T SAY NO TO CHELSEA”-“UP CHELSEA”, Celebration Rocks Stamford Bridge As Pochettino Instructs Boehly To Sign Box To Box Midfielder (Done Deal)

Chelsea has gotten this far in the January transfer window without making a single deal, which is remarkable.

By this time last year, Benoit Badiashile, David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos, Joao Felix, and Mykhailo Mudryk had all been signed. Noni Madueke, Malo Gusto, and Enzo Fernandez all arrived in the final 11 days of the window, pushing Todd Boehly’s expenditure above the £300 million level.

This season’s dearth of activity at Stamford Bridge is mostly due to the Premier League Profitability and Sustainability Rules (PSR). In a perfect world, Mauricio Pochettino would welcome a number of new players to his roster.

So, with that in mind, looks at what Chelsea should try to do in the final two weeks of the January transfer window.

Chelsea urgently needs reinforcements in several areas. Pochettino’s squad needs to be strengthened with the addition of a new centre-forward and centre-back.

Numerous strikers have been connected with the centre-forward position at Chelsea, but none have come close to signing. Benjamin Sesko, a striker for RB Leipzig, is one player worth considering.

The youthful striker, who is also a target for Arsenal, reportedly has a £43 million release clause in his German contract. Despite the fact that it became operational in the summer, paying a charge similar to that amount should be sufficient to persuade Leipzig this month.

Sesko scored 29 goals in 79 games for Red Bull Salzburg before joining the Bundesliga, where he scored seven. However, his big stature and lightning-fast pace make him an ideal replacement for Nicolas Jackson in attack. reports that the Blues began talks with Sporting CP last month, but his £69 million release clause makes the decision tough. The Ivory Coast international has been linked with Arsenal and Liverpool, so Chelsea would be wise to move in now before he joins one of their Premier League rivals.

PSR restrictions necessitate testing the waters with a projected loan move that contains a requirement to fulfil his release clause in the summer, a technique prevalent throughout football today.

Alphonso Davies is maybe the most fascinating newcomer to this ideal window situation. The Bayern Munich left-back has surfaced as a surprising target for Chelsea, amidst growing uncertainty about his future.

Ben Chilwell’s ongoing injury problems have become a source of concern for Pochettino, and Davies’ defensive stability and offensive potential would be an improvement. According to reports, Chilwell might be included in their proposal, maintaining Bayern’s recent habit of recruiting England internationals.

To be active in the January transfer window, Chelsea must sell players. Ian Maatsen has already left on loan to Borussia Dortmund, but there are still plenty of players who could move.

Trevoh Chalobah, Malang Sarr, Conor Gallagher, and Armando Broja have all been linked with a transfer away from West London. Gallagher and Broja are the most likely to leave when it comes to fundraising.

Gallagher has been on Tottenham’s radar for a while, despite being a fixture in Pochettino’s side. The contract deadlock has piqued Spurs’ curiosity, and cashing in would only help their chances of adding players.

Broja, who has battled to break into Chelsea’s lineup, is being pursued by a number of Premier League clubs, and while his rumoured £50 million price tag has raised eyebrows, Financial Fair Play (FFP) constraints ensure the price is reasonable.
