Chelsea Transfers: Analysis and Updates on 5 Players with Deadline Day Coming

Editor’s note: When given this assignment, the subject was “Chelsea Transfers: 5 Deals Fans Would Love to See On Transfer Deadline Day,” but with two of the possible deals reportedly going down in the last 36 hours—César Azpilicueta and Victor Moses—I’ve had to broaden the scope of the story.

To say Chelsea has done very well in this summer transfer window would be an understatement of epic proportions.

And it’s not even over.

With the transfer window closing on August 31, Chelsea have already acquired six very talented players in Marko Marin, Eden Hazard, Thorgan Hazard, Oscar, and now César Azpilicueta and Victor Moses as the club begins begins its metamorphosis into a more fluid, attacking team in the mold of Barcelona.

These moves to date have made Chelsea much younger and much deeper as a whole but adding so many players to its already fairly impressive roster means a couple of familiar names will likely be leaving the team via trade or loan in the not so distant future.

So has Uncle Roman bought Robby enough toys yet to make a run at the English Premier League crown and a shot at a repeat as European champions?

It seems Chelsea is now pretty deep at the defender and midfield positions but as manager Roberto Di Matteo said in a story in The Sun,  “We’re probably a bit light in attacking positions.”

A week from now we’ll see how management handled this perceived weakness up front. For now, let’s analyze five players whose names have been bandied about and examine what the Blues are preparing to do, or have already done, to bring their services to Stamford Bridge.
