Halfway to go in the transfer window and things are starting to heat up in terms of transfers at Stamford Bridge. Having signed players such as Kenedy, Asmir Begovic, Falcao, Cristian Manea and sold veteran goalkeeper Petr Cech to Arsenal, transfer activity is reportedly set to boost up at the Bridge soon with Chelsea expected to complete 3 transfers in the space of one week.
Baba Rahman – Augsburg’s Baba Rahman and Everton’s John Stones are expected to be announced as Chelsea players soon while Colombian player Juan Cuadrado is set to exit Stamford Bridge soon also. After losing left-back Filipe Luis who rejoined his former team Atletico Madrid, Jose Mourinho has been keen to find a replacement for the Brazillian full-back after just one season at the club. The Portuguese boss is said to be closing in on signing the highly rated Ghanaian full-back who is valued at 15 million pounds. Although negotiations are still ongoing between the two clubs, reports from England state that an agreement between the two clubs will be reached soon.
John Stones – Also Chelsea are expected to wrap up the signing of Everton defender John Stones in a few days. The London club saw their first two bids rejected but expect Everton to accept their third bid after progressing discussions between Chelsea chairman Bruce Buck and Bill Kenwright.
Juan Cuadrado – Lastly Colombian winger Juan Cuadrado who has been heavily linked with a move away from the club is reported to being close to a move back to Serie A after a disastrous 6 months at the Bridge. The Colombian was said to be closing on a season long loan move at Inter Milan. However Chelsea boss Jose Mourinho is said to be uninterested in a loan move and is looking to cash in on the 27 year old winger.
