With the window closed, Frank Lampard finally sets about integrating them all into a functioning team unit. There are still a number of questions he needs to answer in order to make his team serious Premier League challengers.
However, it takes a little over two months for the next transmission window to open. Speculation is already stirring up ahead of the January transfer window, with the blues being the topic of great interest.
Here are today’s most notable Chelsea transfer stories.
Jorginho opens talks with Arsenal
Jorginho has shown how close he was to leaving Chelsea for Arsenal after the Gunners became interested in the Italian over the summer.
The Gunners made signing a new midfielder a priority for the summer window. Thomas Partey eventually signed with Atletico Madrid on the deadline, but Jorginho has been widely reported as a target.
Speak with ESPN Brazil The Italian confirmed the talks at some level but reiterated his commitment to the Chelsea cause.
“I think any player is open to negotiation,” he said. “I think you were talking about something. And in the end it was decided that I would stay here. “Now my head is here and we’re going to do a great job with Chelsea, which I always wanted to do.”
Three Serie A clubs are chasing after the unfavorable defender
Frank Lampard’s team caused a sensation in the summer by bringing in over £ 250 million for Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Hakim Ziyech, Edouard Mendy and Thiago Silva.
It gave them one of the toughest assaults in the Premier League – but behind them remains a defense that continues to lose goals with a 3-3 draw against West Brom and Southampton already behind them.

Inter, Juventus and Napoli are all keen to sign Emerson Palmieri, who has turned down the pecking order at Chelsea since Ben Chilwell arrived.
Emerson appeared to leave Stamford Bridge during the summer transfer with Antonio Conte anxious to be reunited with his former Chelsea player at Inter, but there was no move and the 26-year-old stayed in London.
Sea Sky Sports Italy (via Transfermarkt ), Inter are focused on signing Emerson again in January with Juventus and Napoli also interested in the left-back.
Emerson has only played two games for Chelsea this season. Chilwell was signed for £ 50m from Leicester City as Frank Lampard’s first choice on the left of the defense.
Kepa leaves when in doubt
Sevilla made a loan offer for Kepa Arrizabalaga in the summer transfer window, but were even temporarily excluded from signing the inconvenient Chelsea goalkeeper.
Kepa dropped the pecking order at Stamford Bridge after being signed by Edouard Mendy of Rennes. The blues are open to the idea of letting the Spaniard leave the club.
According to Sportstadion (via Sports witnesses ), Kepa’s high wages are an obstacle for Sevilla or any other club signing the 26-year-old.
Chelsea would have to accept a lower transfer fee than the £ 71m they paid for him in the summer of 2018, while the player himself would have to accept a significant pay cut to find first-team football elsewhere.
