Will the Blues sign a world superstar this January…?
Read more Chelsea transfer news.
Here’s five world-class players linked with Chelsea since the transfer window opened, and what they could bring to Stamford Bridge…
5) Xabi Alonso – Real Madrid
According to the Daily Star, Along with Manchester United and Manchester City, Alonso has been offered to Chelsea by his agent.
The legendary Spanish midfielder is not getting any younger, but it still more than good enough to a job for a few more years at the very highest level.
His contract expires at the end of the season, so he would be available for a nominal fee. Alonso would add brilliant passing and guile to a Chelsea midfield currently bereft of a top level deep-lying playmaker. While Ramires and Mikel are excellent destroyers, and Lampard can still get into the opposition box and score goals, Alonso could dictate play in the centre of the park to a much greater level.
