After Chelsea's 3-0 victory at Fulham last night, the Blues look on course to qualify for the Champions League next season.
However, next season the Stamford Bridge outfit will be hoping for the Premier League title. So, here we look at players that could bring domestic success back to the Bridge.
The 2012/ 2013 season has been another triumph for Radamel Falcao, with 24 goals to his name the Colombian sits third in the La Liga top scorers, only behind Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi, who may as well have their own table.
Despite recent rumours of Alex Ferguson trying to hijack the transfer, if Chelsea maintain their current top four position and are able to bring Joe Mourinho to the club.
Potentially a swap deal with Fernando Torres, plus cash, would give this deal more of a chance of coming off.
If Mourinho was to return to the Blues, then it would come to no surprise if he took one of his Real Madrid stars with him. And Sami Khedira has alongside Xabi Alonso been the gel that has held ‘los blancos’ together for the past three years. Khedira could be a great fit in midfield for the Blues.
And with Lampard’s future at the club still in doubt and Mikel being a liability, then Khedira would slot perfectly into the defensive midfield role at Chelsea, with perhaps David Luiz moving up the pitch to play alongside him.
André Schurrle looks to be the signing that Chelsea are closest to securing for a reported £20 million. Although young German talent is in vogue in the European transfer market, this does seem to be expensive business given that Tottenham managed to secure the services of the very talented Lewis Holtby for just £1.5 million.
Nevertheless Schurrle has 22 caps and is capable of playing in a wide position or in a supporting role which considering Moses’s plight in form and Marin’s misfire is a place where Chelsea are lacking depth.
With Curtois, De Bruyne, Lukaku and Hazard, Chelsea has quickly become an enclave for Belgian nationals which looks set to grow if Chelsea beat Manchester United to the signing of Marouanne Fellaini. Fellaini would provide an aggressiveness and a drive that Chelsea have been lacking this season, he is talented in the air and a composed finisher.
With Mata and Hazard supplying him, Fellaini could complete his conversion from central midfielder to centre forward at Chelsea. Fellaini has made clear his desire to play Champions League football and despite David Moyes’ best efforts, Everton look short in that regard. Fellaini's days at Goodison Park are numbered.
