Marcus Thuram and 2 other players who still have a chance of joining Chelsea before the end of the January transfer window

Chelsea has been one of the clubs that has been most active during the current January transfer window. Four new players have joined the Blues’ roster already.

This month, Andrey Santos, Benoit Badiashile, David Fofana, Joao Felix (on loan), and others were brought in.

Chelsea is still looking to add players, according to reports, even though there are still a few weeks until the winter transfer window closes. The Blues’ roster could be bolstered by three potential newcomers, the subjects of this article will examine.

#3 Noni Madueke

Recently, Stamford Bridge has been linked with the highly-rated PSV winger Noni Madueke. One of Europe’s brightest prospects, the 20-year-old could provide a solution to Chelsea’s creative issues.

Graham Potter’s team is having trouble making chances right now because they don’t have a player like Madueke who can dribble extremely well.

Madueke mostly plays on the right wing, where Chelsea doesn’t have many good options. He completes 5.02 dribbles per 90 minutes, according to Fbref, in comparison to Kai Havertz’s 0.73, Aubameyang’s 0.39, and Hakim Ziyech’s 1.79.

If the Blues are willing to pay £40 million, the winger could be sold by his club, PSV.

#2 Moises Caicedo

Brighton’s Ecuadorian midfielder Moises Caicedo has also been linked to the Blues in January.
Enzo Fernandez of Benfica was once a target for Chelsea, who are currently looking for midfield reinforcements.

However, Potter’s team is now looking into other options due to the difficulty of securing a transfer for the Argentine.

In the absence of N’Golo Kante, Chelsea’s midfield has been a source of concern in recent years. The Blues are reportedly considering making an offer for the Ecuadorian. Metro suggests that the fee could be around £70 million.

#1 Marcus Thuram

The Blues are also keeping an eye on Borussia Monchengladbach striker Marcus Thuram at the moment.

The Blues desperately need more firepower up front after scoring few goals so far this season. In 18 games this season, Potter’s team has only scored 21 goals in the Premier League.

In addition, they have only scored four goals in their last nine games in all competitions. Raheem Sterling, the team’s leading scorer thus far, has scored six goals in 22 games.

The team’s attack would have a much-needed focal point with Thuram’s addition. For Borussia Monchengladbach, the French striker has already scored 13 goals and provided four assists across all competitions this season.

At the conclusion of the 2022-23 football season, his contract with the German club will expire. As a result, the Blues’ January move for Thuram may be the most effective strategy for avoiding competition for his signature.
