David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos, Joao Felix, Noni Madueke, and Malo Gusto.

Neymar

Perhaps the most surprising name on the list given Todd Boehly ‘s policy of investing in youth, it would be interesting to see how Neymar would be thrown into the mix in this Chelsea side.

The Brazilian has been linked with the Blues on previous occasions, and whilst his quality is undeniable, Chelsea would have to ask themselves would it be worth it when players like Mudryk need opportunities at the highest level.

Additionally, if Chelsea were to call PSG back to the negotiation table, it is still unclear as how they would act, given the sour note that was left between the two clubs following Hakim Ziyech ‘s failed deadline day loan.

Moises Caicedo

The race for Caicedo reached a boiling point in the final days of the January window, as the Ecuadorian announced his intention to move away from social media amidst bids from Arsenal before Brighton would suspend the player and block his dream for now.

Chelsea are also known to be keen admirers and could use Potter’s personal rapport with the player from his time on the south coast as the Seagulls’ manager to trump their rivals.

The only stumbling block in any deal would be his current club. They may be more amenable to sell in the summer, however, an evaluation upwards of £70 million, based on Arsenal’s late bids, has certainly raised eyebrows nationwide.

Declan Rice

The former Chelsea academy player was also tipped to switch from the east to the west of the capital in January, though the final weeks of last month were rather quiet on this front.

Again, Arsenal are down as favourites to sign the defensive midfielder at shorter odds of 9/4, though a move to Chelsea could be advantageous to all parties Declan Ricejoins his boyhood club, Chelsea get their man, and maybe even convinceMason Mountto tie himself to the club to play alongside his childhood friend.

Jude Bellingham

The hottest property in English football at this current moment, Bellingham has suitors across the continent and Chelsea appear to be one of them.

Blues fans should get a good look at him when they face Dortmund in the upcoming Champions League Round-of-16 tie, and whether or not this forces them to join Real Madrid and Liverpool in leading the chase for the midfielder, only time will tell.

James Maddison

Finally, Chelsea have been tipped to make a move for Leicester City’s Maddison after making his influence at his current club known to all.

The 26-year-old’s return from injury before the World Cup coincided with an upturn in the Foxes’ form, and in total has scored eight and assisted four in 15 Premier League appearances this campaign.

This top-flight experience and creative threat is exactly what Chelsea have been crying out for in recent months, and if a move does go ahead it could be one of the biggest steals in recent memory.
