The January transfer window is not usually a time in which you’d get the quality we need but case your mind back to last year when Nemanja Matic, who is probably one of the best in the XI, returned to the club after a spell at Benfica.
Recent reports suggest that Andre Schurrle has attracted the interest of Chelsea’s second-round Champions League opponents Paris Saint-Germain. The French club are reportedly willing to offer the World Cup-winner a more prominent role in the French capital.Chelsea winger Mohamed Salah (Picture: AP)
The 24-year-old has not been in the best of form this season and only performed in drips and drabs during his first campaign. He doesn’t influence matches when he comes of the bench, like Chelsea had with Salomon Kalou and isn’t good enough to usurp the spot of the established order, but he only recently recovered from an illness and it’s not clear if this may have had a few lasting effects.
Mohamed Salah is another winger who may look to move on and was linked with Besiktas previously. The Egyptian has failed to make an impression since his arrival last winter. He’s a decent young player but has made just 16 appearances and there does not seem to be a great deal of logic behind his signing, only that he played a few good games against Chelsea in Europe.
Should someone move on then we could see a new face at Stamford Bridge but as far as Mourinho is concerned he’ll probably try keep the current group together if it’s at all possible.
