So far, the protracted transfer of Andre Schurrle is the only bit of business Chelsea have completed since the end of last season, but the Blues fans can sleep easy knowing that the German winger won't be the last new recruit to join Jose Mourinho's second revolution.
In truth, the Blues can add Michael Essien, Kevin De Bruyne and Romelu Lukaku to the list of signings as they played no part in last season's Premier League top four and Europa League double.
If you care to class the Ghanaian and two talented Belgian's as new arrivals, then Chelsea's haul of Schurrle, Essien, De Bruyne and Lukaku undoubtedly already strengthens a very strong hand—and it won't stop there.
A new striker will surely be sought in the coming weeks and, in my opinion, Mourinho needs a physical presence to shore up his midfield.
However, even with Hilario, Ross Turnbull, Paulo Ferreira, Florent Malouda and Yossi Benayoun being released from the wage bill, there's still plenty of dead wood hanging around in the squad who could be cashed in upon with that resource going to good use.
So without going all Joe Kinnear on you, here's the transfer deals I'd commission in and out of the club if I were Chelsea's Director of Football.
