There are now just eight days left in the January transfer window – and Chelsea fans are still waiting for news of a big signing.
The Blues have only added 16-year-old striker Bryan Fiabema to their ranks so far in the January window, with the teenager becoming the first post-transfer ban signing made by the club.
Chelsea have been strongly linked with a number of players , but there have been no new additions to boost Frank Lampard’s first team squad as the Blues look to try and keep hold of fourth spot in the Premier League.
