Chelsea went into the 2019/2020 Premier League season with a transfer ban which prevented them from making any signings during the summer transfer window.
The ban was expected to continue into the winter window but following an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport, the Blues have now had their ban reduced and thus, will be able to make signings once the January transfer window opens up.
This is great news for Frank Lampard’s Chelsea as it’ll give them a chance to bolster some key areas in the team and supplement their top-four bid with some new signings.
Here’s a look at 4 signings Chelsea could make once the transfer window opens up;
Ben Chillwell has proven to be one of the best left-backs in the Premier League having played a key role in Leicester’s incredible push for a top-four spot which currently sees them sat in 2nd place having lost just two games this season.
The Foxes currently boast of the best defensive record in the Premier League as they have conceded just nine goals all season long, due in large part to Chillwell’s efforts on the left flank which have complemented the rest of Leicester’s back four and attracted Chelsea’s attention.
Chillwell is a pacey full-back who’s great at making overlapping and inverted runs to contribute to his side’s build up play when need be.
Chillwell would reportedly cost Chelsea a fee in the region of £50m, but it’d be well worth it for a player of his quality.
