“Advanced talks” are underway between Chelsea and Blues regarding a La Liga defender.

“Advanced talks” are underway between Chelsea and Blues regarding a La Liga defender.

The January transfer window for Chelsea hasn’t started in earnest yet because the first week was dominated by loan recalls and exits rather than potential additions. That might be about to change, though, as head coach Mauricio Pochettino made hints that the hierarchy would be meeting soon to discuss the market targets.

 

In addition to a midfielder and defensive option, the Blues have also been linked to a striker in the upcoming weeks. There are rumors circulating that some sales might be necessary to generate money for any signings, so everyone will be watching to see which players decide to leave.

Having said that, as the Blues get ready to assemble their roster for the second half of the season, here is a look at the most recent Chelsea transfer news for the January window.

 

Ian Maatsen 

According to Fabrizio Romano, Borussia Dortmund has formally approached Ian Maatsen, a defender for Chelsea, during the January transfer window. The Dutchman, whose current contract is expiring in just 18 months, has received a loan offer from the Bundesliga team, and negotiations are officially underway.

 

Only months after turning down a permanent switch from the Blues to his former loan team Burnley, the Cobham academy graduate is reportedly eager to switch.

Aitor Paredes

According to the Sun, Chelsea is interested in signing Athletic Bilbao defender Aitor Paredes in the upcoming transfer window. As the Blues look to bolster their backline options, scouts have reportedly been keeping an eye on the 23-year-old, with questions raised regarding a possible price tag.

 

Conor Gallagher

Conor Gallagher, a midfield player for Chelsea, is still a target for Tottenham before the January transfer window closes. Calciomercato, for example. The England international is reportedly admired by Ange Postecoglou, but it’s unclear if they can live up to the £50 million price tag.
