The last Blues roundup of the year.
All the latest news, transfer gossip and rumours about Chelsea on New Year’s Eve.
Blues poised to sign Croatian striker
Chelsea look to have completed the first deal of the January window already with the West London side reportedly sealing a move for 23 year old Andrej Kramaric.
The Daily Telegraph reports the Blues will pay around £7 million for the Croat who will sign a four and a half year deal – however like so many other of Chelsea’s young talents, Kramaric will be sent immediately on loan to Vitesse Arnhem.
The news will come as a blow to Leicester City who were keen themselves on signing Kramaric but were also hopeful of a loan move if he did end up at Stamford Bridge.
