Chelsea’s eight January transfer window signings


Chelsea’s transfer spending during the 2022/23 season has been quite extraordinary.

The Blues were purchased by a consortium headed up by American businessman and investor Todd Boehly in May 2022, ending the 19-year ownership of Roman Abramovich, and it quickly became apparent that freshening things up at Stamford Bridge was high on the agenda.

Well over £500m later and Chelsea have drafted 16 first-team players into the club, eight of whom arrived in the January transfer window.

The amount of money spent has put huge pressure on the shoulders of head coach Graham Potter, but there’s bound to be significant pressure put on the players themselves as Chelsea look to climb the Premier League table after a desperately disappointing first half of the season.

So who will make the greatest impact and who should be perceived as the best bits of business concluded by Boehly and his rather expansive chequebook?

£8m is all Ivory Coast striker David Datro Fofana set Chelsea back, though he’s very much viewed as a signing for the future.

The 20-year-old arrived from Molde on New Year’s Day and debuted against Manchester City in Chelsea’s FA Cup drubbing four days later. There wasn’t much Fofana could have done about it in truth and there’s probably more chance of him making an impact next season rather than during the current campaign.

Football Manager reckons he’s pretty good, mind.
