As soon as Jose Mourinho was reinstated as Chelsea manager, some of the worlds brightest stars were linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
Reports have surfaced that Chelsea are close to agreeing a deal for Bayer Leverkusen utility forward Andre Schurrle as well as Zenit St Petersburg forward Hulk.
Both players are extremely talented and valued highly in world football. However, are they really needed at Stamford Bridge?
Chelsea already have Eden Hazard, Juan Mata, Oscar, Victor Moses, Demba Ba and Fernando Torres on the roster and the addition of more superstars could create unrest in the Chelsea camp.
While Hulk would be a good signing for Chelsea, as he has many talents in his locker, it is hard to see where Schurrle would fit in at Chelsea.
Hazard, Mata and Oscar have made the attacking midfield line at Chelsea their own last season and put in many fine displays terrorising the oppositions defences.
Last summer Marko Marin signed on the dotted line at Stamford Bridge and has failed to break into the first team at Chelsea and has been warming the bench for the majority of the season. The same situation could occur with Schurrle if he arrives at Chelsea.
The last situation that is needed at Stamford Bridge is for a presence of unrest to be in the Blues camp. Fighting within a squad will only lead to poor results and a lack of form for the Chelsea starlets.
While Schurrle is a talented player, many are of the opinion that he is not needed at Chelsea. Maybe the Mourinho and the management set up know something that we don't about Schurrle but from the outside it is hard to see where he will fit in at Stamford Bridge.
The addition of Hulk would provide competition for Fernando Torres and Demba Ba and would be a major coup for Chelsea.
Only time will tell what is in-store for the Blues in the transfer market.
