Rumour Has It: Chelsea turn attention to unsettled Everton midfielder Onana
Chelsea have spent plenty of money on recruitment during the January transfer window, landing Mykhaylo Mudryk, Noni Madueka, Andrey Santos, David Datro Fofana and Benoit Badiashile.
But the Blues may not be done with transfer activity before Tuesday’s window closure.
Chelsea are still eager to bolster their midfield options, having missed out on a few key targets.
