Chelsea news: Blues offered £50m Thomas Lemar deal, Moussa Dembele latest after terms agreed

The January transfer window is now open, but Chelsea are yet to sign any players.

The Blues are now able to sign players this month, after the club’s transfer ban was reduced following an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

However, no new players have arrived in the first week of the window.

One player has departed, with Danny Drinkwater returning from a loan spell at Burnley, before then heading out on loan to Aston Villa.

But there have still been plenty of players being linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
