In football, the playing season goes from August until May, but the transfer rumor season never shuts down. Especially for the big-name clubs.

Chelsea and Russian billionaire owner Roman Abramovich went on a major spending spree over the summer transfer market, but it’s obvious to most Blues fans that the club is still a little thin in some positions.

With Petr Cech signed to a four-year contract and Thibaut Courtois waiting in the wings and out on loan at Atlético Madrid, getting another goalkeeper is certainly not a concern right now over at Stamford Bridge.

And with Juan Mata, the club’s new centerpiece, and young signees like Eden Hazard, Marko Marin, Oscar and Victor Moses all now on board, the central attacking midfield does not seem like an area of concern in the upcoming winter transfer market window.

Some players are rumored to be on their way out, and injury concerns, like the one that cropped up Sunday against Liverpool when captain John Terry suffered ligament damage in his right knee, threaten to affect the squad even more.

Here are 10 players rumored in the press to be on the Blues’ radar, and my spin on whether or not they are worth the effort and money to try to bring to west London in the future.
