According to him, Chelsea are after top players that will improve the team ahead of the second half of the season.
Chelsea are free to sign players after their transfer ban was lifted upon their appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

CAS waived the second transfer window thus paving the way for Chelsea to sign players in January.
The likes of former player Nathan Ake of Bournemouth, Borussia Dortmund winger Jadon Sancho, and Crystal Palace forward Wilfried Zaha have been linked with the club.
