Hello and welcome to Wednesday’s Chelsea transfer blog from football.london.
The Blues got their Premier League season off to the perfect start on Monday night with a 3-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion. A penalty from Jorginho, a stunner from Reece James and one from Kurt Zouma wrapped up three points on the opening day for Frank Lampard’s side.
Off the pitch, the rumours continue to flood at Stamford Bridge with the Blues still eyeing reinforcements after a busy summer already. Edouard Mendy appears to be closing in on a move while talk of interest in midfielder Declan Rice still remains.
There will likely be exits from the capital as well, and you can catch up on all of today’s updates on the blog below.
