The top ten players linked with signing for Chelsea in the January transfer window, with Jose Mourinho seeking to gain ground on Premier League leaders Arsenal.
Chelsea may not have been as utterly relentless in their pursuit of the Premier League title so far as they were in Jose Mourinho’s first reign at Stamford Bridge, but the west London outfit are still in a competitive position, and just four points behind leaders Arsenal.
Mourinho’s focus now turns to the possibility of overtaking the Blues’ London rivals with January transfer window recruitment.
Here’s our list of the top ten players recently linked with a Chelsea transfer.
Radamel Falcao (AS Monaco)
Chelsea continue to be linked with a move to sign Radamel Falcao despite repeated insistences from his club AS Monaco that the player is not available.
The Daily Express have again reported that Blues boss Jose Mourinho hopes to bring the Colombia international to Stamford Bridge in January.
That Chelsea are interested in a player who already has nine Ligue 1 goals is little surprise, but given that Falcao cost Monaco €60 million in the summer, he would not be a cheap or easy signing for Roman Abramovich.
