With the Blues customarily linked with every decent player in the world for the January transfer window, with 3 weeks left rumours are coming hard in and fast.
3 Players Chelsea Should Avoid Signing in January
1. Xabi Alonso
All in all it may seem that Xabi Alonso would be a good signing for Chelsea, he’s experienced in the Premier League, has played under Jose Mourinho before and is still one of the better midfielders in world football. Though it isn’t him that is the problem, it is Chelsea. An overcrowded midfield already doesn’t need another talented player to be consigned to the bench when they already have to find a place for Juan Mata and Willian, as they are too good to rot on the sidelines. There is also the possibility of growing over reliant on the former Liverpool star, the last thing Chelsea need, as his recent injury problems have decimated the amount of minutes he can spend on the bench.
