January is fast approaching and with Chelsea sitting four points off the pace in the Premier League, Jose Mourinho will have one eye on the January transfer window to see who might be available to strengthen his squad.
Defensive midfield remains an ongoing concern, with recent weeks highlighting the Blues' need for an extra squad member to help them through the remainder of the season, especially with Marco van Ginkel out injured until next year.
It's in attack where Chelsea can benefit most from a new signing, though. While Samuel Eto'o and Fernando Torres have shown signs they are beginning to find their best form, Chelsea still lack quality in depth when it comes to their strikers.
Just how vital that will be come the end of 2013-14 remains to be seen, but there can be no doubting a world-class addition to their attacking ranks will only strengthen Chelsea's bid to regain the Premier League trophy this term.
