There have also been a number of outgoings and on deadline day, Ruben Loftus-Cheek joined Fulham on loan, while Tiemoue Bakayoko was loaned to Napoli.

No Partey

Chelsea reportedly opted against competing with rivals Arsenal for midfielder Thomas Partey after failing to offload a number of fringe players.

Arsenal have signed Partey from Atletico Madrid after triggering the player’s £45million release clause on transfer deadline day.

Chelsea had also been linked with a move for the Ghana international.

But according to The Telegraph, the Blues ended their interest after they were unable to free up sufficient space on their wage bill.

Ruben Loftus-Cheek and Tiemoue Bakayoko have headed out on loan but the likes of Marcos Alonso, Emerson Palmieri, Antonio Rudiger, Fikayo Tomori and Danny Drinkwater have all remained at Stamford Bridge.
