Cheers guys :)

Joe Dowley has got himself straight into the transfer window by making many signings, as well as many people going out of the club. Here they all are:

Transfers In

Olivier Ntcham Manchester City: £675K

The young French attacking midfielder is known for his very good ability when it comes to the physical side of the game, and is very creative on the ball.

Zakaria Bakkali PSV Eindhoven: £600K

The Belgian striker-cum-winger has joined the contingent from Belgium, and Chelsea will be looking to develop him into someone that the club can use in the future.

Gennaro Tutino Napoli: £675K

Another young winger, the Italian youngster is very good with the ball at his feet, and with some good pace and technical ability he can take on almost any defender.

Neal Maupay OGC Nice: £1.3M

The young Frenchman already could make it in the Championship, and is very good fro the age of 16. He holds very international youth records, and the blues will want to convert him into someone that will do everything up front.

Maximillian Meyer Schalke: £1.7M

The young German has attracted interest from many top level clubs, and for such a small fee it is clear that it will turn out a bargain. The attacking midfielder is very creative and great at dribbling.

Mattheus Flamengo: £925K

A young Brazilian winger, who is very all-round technically, as well as being physically strong. For such a small fee, you can't really go wrong with this talent.

Alberto Grassi Atalanta: £1.7M

The young Italian central-midfielder likes to play deeper in midfield, and is very good at passing.

Michael Bradley AS Roma: £13.75M

The American midfielder is a very tough tackler, and despite his poor discipline at times he is a very good passer and can control whole games on his own.

Yassine Benzia Olympique Lyonais: £8.25M

The young French striker will hopefully look to help up front with Chelsea's future, and possesses some good finishing.

Etienne Capoue Toulouse FC: £13M

Another man to run the midfield, the tall Frenchman is very good in the air, as well as being quick and good at passing.

Dede Vasco: £26M

The massive Brazilian centre-back will look to sure up one of the weaker parts of the squad, with his aerial prowess as well as speed across the ground.

Dowley has also let go of some players, as well as loaning out money of the youngsters at the club.

Transfers Out


Yossi Benayoun AC Milan: £1.6M
Florent Malouda Swansea: £2.2M


Milan Lalkovic Sheffield United: Loan
Yassine Benzia Cardiff: Loan
