Good Evening Blues and welcome to Transfer Centre from CFCnet, where we take a look at the latest Chelsea transfer rumours during the winter window.
First of all, the biggest story today is Chelsea emerging as the bookies favourites to sign West Brom striker Saido Berahino during this window.
Chelsea need strikers there is no doubt about that and Berahino will leave this window, that is two things we are pretty sure about.
Bet Victor have placed Chelsea as the favourites to sign the England Under 21 International, but his club will only sell at the right price.
Next up, The Sun are suggesting that Chelsea have received and enquiry from Everton regarding the availability of winger Bertrand Traore on loan, and the Blues could be interested.
To me this shouts out opportunity to make another offer for John Stones, including this loan deal for Traore, even though that is fairly far fetched right now.
Finally, reports are suggesting that Chelsea are still the ‘most interested’ in signing Brazilian Alexandre Pato who is also wanted by Liverpool and Arsenal.
Nothing is clear as of yet but the Blues are seriously weighing up the possibility of bringing the 27-year old in during this window with the lack of fire power up top.
Thats it for now Blues but don’t forget to follow my Twitter here for the very latest Chelsea news @cfcneteditor
