The 2011 transfer window proved explosive for Chelsea, with both Fernando Torres and David Luiz joining the club on deadline day.

Given looming UEFA financial fair play restrictions, this season's window will probably be a little bit more subdued. Even so, Chelsea figure to be active, at least in two areas: center back and midfield.
