Chelsea confirmed yesterday the signing of Samuel Eto'o from Anzhi Makhachkala on a one-year deal.
The Cameroonian forward joins former Anzhi team-mate Willian at Stamford Bridge - and GMS Academy member Nevo Nahmias looks at the players who might be forced out by the new arrivals before deadline day.
Demba Ba and Fernando Torres - After Samuel Eto'o signed a contract and the impressive Rumelu Lukaku returned from a season-long loan at West Bromwich, Demba Ba & Fernando Torres' position at the squad is looking uncertain.
Both fans and pundits agree that Demba Ba's short career at Stamford Bridge should come to an end sooner rather than later. Also Fernando Torres' career hasn't been the brightest and might be coming to an end very soon.
Torres has been linked with shock moves to Barcelona and Valencia and even joining his boy-hood club Atletico Madrid on a season-long loan.
Demba Ba has been linked with moves also back to his former club at Newcastle on a season-long loan and Russian side Anzhi Makhachkala.
Victor Moses - Although Moses joined Chelsea from Wigan just last year, the Nigerian has been some sort of super-sub for Chelsea, usually coming off the bench to make major impact and scoring goals at crucial moments such as a 92nd minute header against Shakhtar Donetsk in a 3-2 win in the Champions League group stage last season.
Moses was also linked with a season-long loan move to Fulham as Willian signed a 5-year contract with Chelsea, a move that pushed him even further down the pecking order than he was last year.
John Obi Mikel - The Nigerian has been a Chelsea player for the last seven years but developed to be the outstanding player for Chelsea that he could have been.
Fighting for his place against, Mourinho-favourites Michael Essien and Frank Lampard, as well as new-boy Marco van Ginkel and the amazing Ramires, Mikel's time at Stamford Bridge looks set to end.
His agent said that Mikel is happy at Chelsea and won't go anywhere this summer and Mourinho still has plans for him - recent signings and recent performances from the Nigerian hints at a possible move.
