Chelsea Set Eyes On These 5 Star Players In January 2024

Chelsea

Chelsea will need to do a lot of work in the January transfer window to guarantee that Mauricio Pochettino’s first season at Stamford Bridge is remembered positively.

Chelsea faces a massive January transfer window after a difficult first half of the season.

The Blues have had some good moments under new manager Mauricio Pochettino, but they are currently ninth in the Premier League table. Another large spending window could be on the way if club executives can get past the Financial Fair Play rules.

Pochettino, on the other hand, may be able to tackle numerous key concerns with his squad if they are able to spend. Mirror Football looks at what moves Pochettino may make to guarantee his debut season is remembered positively.

Benjamin Sesko

Benjamin Sesko is a name familiar to Chelsea supporters, with the 20-year-old constantly linked to the Blues in recent years. A transfer for Sesko, who has established himself as one of Europe’s brightest rising stars, would undoubtedly fit Chelsea’s agenda.

But, in his first season in the Bundesliga, he hasn’t exactly blown everyone away at RB Leipzig. He has only three goals in the German Bundesliga, and the fact that he is only in his first year at Leipzig will make him pricey.

Ivan Toney

Pochettino’s primary priority must be to sign a new striker, with Ivan Toney one of the leading candidates. While the Blues’ 31 goals are not bad, and are 10 more than Manchester United, their strikers have been ineffective.

Toney, who has established himself as a proven goalscorer in the Premier League, would undoubtedly fix that problem. Despite his eight-month suspension, the Englishman would be a welcome addition.

However, Pochettino faces significant challenges if he wants to bring in the Brentford player. For starters, the Bees will seek a high amount for the striker, while Arsenal is also willing to sign him.

Mike Maignan

One of Chelsea’s other major concerns is the custodian position, with questions surrounding Robert Sanchez’s long-term viability. The Spaniard’s injury has opened the door for a January transfer.

Maignan would surely suit the bill if they are searching for a long-term solution. The Frenchman has starred for AC Milan, helping them win Serie A in 2022, but with the Rossoneri trailing bitter rivals Inter, they may be eager to cash in.

Matty Cash

With Reece James sidelined for the foreseeable future due to yet another long-term injury, a search for a new right-back may be in order. Matty Cash is one player that has been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.

This season, the Polish international has made 15 Premier League starts for Aston Villa. However, given Villa’s success and Chelsea’s troubles, convincing Cash to leave would be difficult.

Aaron Ramsdale

Aaron Ramsdale, an Arsenal backup, would be a better choice if Maignan is not available. At the Gunners, the Englishman has fallen behind David Raya and has little hope of catching up.

That might mean it’s time for him to leave the Emirates Stadium, and Chelsea offers the opportunity to join a team that hopes to finish in the top four. Although Arsenal has stated that he is not for sale in January, their determination may be put to the test.
