With the January transfer window in sight, Chelsea has already started making contacts with potential players to help resurrect their ailing season.
A poor start to Jose Mourinho team would definitely make Blues Owner Roman Abramovich to make some signings during the transfer window.
According to Transfer Tavern, FC Porto’s defensive midfielder Giannelli Imbula whose impressive display against Chelsea in the UEFA Champions League triumph led to the victory of the Portuguese team has been under Chelsea radar.
The move which will help Jose Mourinho to solve his midfield headache after watching the combination of Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic prove too sloppy this season.
The French professional defensive midfielder is known for his tough tackling, exquisite passing ability and ability to break down opposition attack.
Having made his professional debut for Guingamp in the French Ligue 2, Imbula has grown in his game.
He moved to Marseille for €7 million in 2013. His exceptional qualities led FC Porto to sign him from the French giant for a fee of €20 million in July 2015.
The French international might be on his way to Stamford Bridge in the near future and would be great addition to squad as a result of his similar qualities of former Chelsea star Claude Makelele
