Like a lot of people, John Terry has been a huge factor of Premier League football while I have been growing up and I find it remarkable that he has performed so strongly for so long. However, The Sun are now reporting that Galatasaray, managed by former Manchester City boss Roberto Mancini, is ready to make a move for the Blues skipper.
So it seems that Chelsea will have to fight off interest from Liverpool and Tottenham to land the signature of Porto striker Jackson Martinez, which is no surprise. But with the news of competition coming so close to the January transfer window, here is why the Blues need to do everything they can to secure the switch in their favour.
For me, Chelsea's Achilles heel right now is their front line. Although Samuel Eto'o seems to have found his shooting boots, the Blues have still only scored three goals this season between their trio of strikers, so this will be some welcome news for Blues fans, if you believe it. The Mirror suggest thatChelsea are ready to offer £60m for the services of Radamel Falcao, but how does he compare to the current crop?
Last Wednesday night, Chelsea sailed to victory with a 3-0 defeat over German side Schalke in the Champions League. The game was well played by the blues, and in it, fans finally got to see what new summer signing Samuel Eto’o was capable of. He netted two goals, while fellow striker Demba Ba scored the final, giving Chelsea the three-goal advantage. The three points from this win put Chelsea in first place in the Group E standings, which is pretty good considering they dropped points early on in the season, losing their opening match of the group stages to FC Basel.
Jose Mourinho's return to Stamford Bridge has seen Chelsea start brightly, but there is always room for improvement. Here are three players who I would like the Blues to sign in January to boost their title hopes.
David Luiz is causing Chelsea problems of late, making mistakes which have led to the Blues getting into trouble on the pitch. And although the West London side have plenty of cover with John Terry, Gary Cahill and Branislav Ivanovic all able to play in the centre, I put forward the name of this centre-back and ask - could this be the man to lead the Chelsea backline for years to come?
Chelsea snatched a late 2-2 at home to West Brom yesterday, so here are five things we learned from the clash.
Fernando Torres isn't what he used to be. That's the opinion of most football fans across the country, and a view that I share. The Spaniard has fallen from grace since his blistering form at Liverpool, but I still think he has enough about him to lead the line at Chelsea, which is a less-shared opinion.
Is Cahill the best partner for John Terry? 3 things we learnt from Chelsea's 3-0 victory over Schalke
Chelsea beat Schalke 3-0 for the second time in as many weeks in their Champions League clash last night, but here are three things we learnt from the game.
Last season under the 'fat Spanish waitor' Rafa Benitez, Cesar Aspilicueta was a key player at Chelsea. The Spaniard arrived from Marseille and slotted into the right-back berth with Branislav Ivanovic tucking inside to the central position next to Gary Cahill.
Ahead of Chelsea's Champions League clash with Schalke tonight, here are three players from the Bundesliga side who I think have the potential to hurt the Blues.
Chelsea are in with a real chance of reclaiming the Premier League title this season under the guidance of Jose Mourinho and they have started brightly. They may be five points behind leaders Arsenal but they have shown they have the firepower to mix it with the big boys, and there is still a long way to go until the end of the season.
