Hello and welcome along to football.london’s Chelsea transfer news live blog on Wednesday, August 18.
Deadline day is fast approaching and Chelsea supporters are still hopeful that Thomas Tuchel will add to his already talented squad with a few more shrewd signings.
Chelsea have already purchased Marcus Bettinelli and club-record signing, Romelu Lukaku, so far this summer, but are still linked with moves for Declan Rice, Jude Bellingham, Aurelien Tchouameni, and Jules Kounde.
Lukaku’s move was worth £97.5million and is the second most expensive transfer ever in the Premier League. However, with Roman Abramovich’s spending power, the Blues will be confident finishing the transfer window with a bang!
In terms of outgoings, Tammy Abraham has completed his £34million move to Roma, whilst Kenedy has agreed a loan switch away from Stamford Bridge. Michy Batshuayi is also nearing a move to Besiktas.
Those three are among many other stars who could leave the Blues this month.
Stay tuned with us throughout the day as we’ll keep you up to date with all the very latest on any Chelsea-related news.
