Chelsea FC is in the transfer news again, as the blues have reportedly completed the third signing for the January 2023 window.
Chelsea FC has dominated the transfer news once again, as reports indicate that the Blues are under the ownership of Todd Boehly. The Blues have reportedly acquired the services of the AS Monaco centre-back Benoit Badiashile; the deal is speculated to have cost the blues over 38 million euros.
Mixed reactions have trailed the signing following the poor form of Chelsea FC under the management of Graham Potter. The blues have only managed to win one game in their last 7 appearances in the premier league, and this is a worrisome statistic for a side that is competing for a top-four spot.
The Blues also have a poor goal-scoring form, as they have only managed to score 23 goals in the premier league so far in 16 games. The draw with Nottingham Forest in the fixture played on Sunday, January 1st, 2022, has raised concerns as to if the blues should rather focus on the attacking aspect of their game.
The medicals have reportedly been completed, and all that is left would be an official announcement from both clubs. This was a deal many did not see coming but highly anticipated as Chelsea currently has a 38-year-old Thiago Silva still going strong in defence but requires the much-needed help in terms of squad rotation in that position.
