Chelsea owner closes door on new signings


Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has closed all doors on the signing of attacking players ahead of the January winter transfer window after receiving clear guidance, according to reports.

The Blues team invested about £100 million in the recruitment of attacking players, including Hakim Ziyech and Kai Havertz from Ajax and Bayer Leverkusen respectively.

Now the Blues team are being linked with a move for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala with reports that the interest is backed by an influential member of the Bleus team but Roman Abramovich will not give his nod to it as the club are yet to make any official contact.

The report claims his trusted men have given him the advice to desist from bringing in attackers and midfielders as he wants to save his new stars because he is excited about them and their prospect to the team.

Seeing these players flourish is the wish of the Blues billionaire and he will not risk their performance by bringing in competition to the team when they are yet to offer all they can to the club.

The arrival of Timo Werner, Hakim Ziyech, and Kai Havertz has made Chelsea a more deadly team in the attack and that has helped them to score more goals in their recent outings.

However, the West London outfit are opened to signing a defender as that is the only position Roman Abramovich is not satisfied with.
Chelsea have improved their defence with the signature of experienced Thiago Silva and goalkeeper Edouard Mendy but there is still a need to bring in some players that will serve as covers to the team.

The recent wins by Frank Lampard’s team have earned them a place closer to the top in the Premier League table as they are only four points behind the league leaders.
