The January transfer window is here and for Chelsea it could be a relatively quiet month.
After spending significant amounts of money in the Summer Window on players like Romelu Lukaku, Thomas Tuchel will be hesitant to spend a lot of money on new additions.
That said, you can never rule out the Blues completely when it comes to surprise chords.
Several names have already been linked with a move to the club and here talkSPORT.com brings you all the latest transfer news and West London gossip.
Tuchel called on Kenedy to “make his mark” after Chelsea recalled the winger of his Flamengo loan amid an injury crisis at Stamford Bridge.
Speaking to the media ahead of the Blues’ trip to Manchester City, Tuchel said: “Kenedy is back and I’m very happy about it.
“It’s a huge opportunity for him to make his mark in this club and this team. We will try now, from today, to push and support it.
“I won’t speak as if Kenedy is the solution, but he is a solution.”
Rudiger won’t sign a new deal at Chelsea – no matter what the club offer him, talkSPORT understands.
The 28-year-old has become one of the Premier League’s best defenders since Thomas Tuchel took over from Frank Lampard as manager in January 2021.
And the talkSPORT transfer inside Alex Crook has now provided an update that isn’t a great read for Blues fans.
When asked if he could stay, Crook replied, “I don’t think so, Jim.
“We know his advisers have been in talks with Real Madrid and PSG.
“I was told several weeks ago that no matter what money Chelsea threw at him, his heart was determined to move to Real Madrid.
“We’ve seen many high-profile examples – perhaps the highest-ranking Cristiano Ronaldo of all – of when a big club like Real Madrid comes for you it’s very difficult to keep them out of their clutches.”
Chelsea are eagerly awaiting Erling Haaland to prepare for talks with Borussia Dortmund over his future.

Chelsea could be on the verge of taking a heavy blow in their pursuit of Theo Hernandez with news that he could be on the verge of signing a new deal with AC Milan.
