However, there are still a few more potential comings and goings at Stamford Bridge before the deadline on January 31.

Below you can see a round-up of the latest Chelsea transfer news and gossip.



Morata clear to join Atletico Madrid

Not many will be more happy to see Higuain join the Blues than Alvaro Morata as this clears the path for the Spaniard to end his nightmare in England.

Since signing for Chelsea in the summer of 2017, Morata has been a shadow of his former self but the striker has reportedly had plenty of options.

And it looks like Morata will join LaLiga giants Atletico Madrid as he has flown to Spain to complete his move, according to Goal.com.

Paredes to snub Chelsea for Paris

After letting Cesc Fabregas join Monaco earlier this month, Sarri is desperate to recruit a defensive midfielder to fill the void.

Zenit St Petersburg man Leandro Paredes looked to be the one to replace Fabregas but the latest news does not look good for Chelsea.

French giants Paris Saint-Germain may well have nabbed the Argentine with L’Equipe claiming a deal has already been wrapped up for him.

Hazard future remains unclear

A potential Eden Hazard departure has been awkwardly hovering on the minds of all Chelsea fans and the latest news will do nothing to reduce their fears.

The Belgian will stay until the end of the season at least but Sarri has said he’s still not sure where his future lies amid the constant speculation he will move to Real Madrid.
