Chelsea transfer rumours: 29 players linked by press

Date published: Thursday 7th January 2016 1:22

Check out the list of players linked with moves to Chelsea in the January transfer window by the national press over the past four months…

Although top football clubs sign only a handful of first-team players every year, many of those in the Premier League are linked with dozens and dozens of new ones ahead of every transfer window.

Ever since the summer one shut at the start of September, we’ve been tracking the players linked with moves to Chelsea by the mainstream press. We’ve ignored ‘according to reports from Italy’-style rumours, including only the new and exclusive reports from the national newspapers in a bid to decipher which sources can be trusted…and which can’t.
