Chelsea fans, we’d like to firstly extend a very warm welcome.

If you’ve reached this far then you’re obviously looking to be fed the biggest headlines on one GMS-sized platter.

You’re in luck. Below we’ve collected the most intriguing stories to be found on the Blues. What do you know, it’s also in video format above. Enjoy.

Koke interest

It might not be time to hit the panic button at Stamford Bridge just yet, but there’s no denying that Chelsea are in trouble.

One thing that usually comes from a poor run of form from the reigning Premier League champions is transfer links and, predictably, the latest big one is in.

Spanish newspaper Sport, as relayed by English sources, claim that Chelsea have turned their attentions to Atletico Madrid’s Koke in the hope that they can buy him in the January transfer window.

Unlikely, but never say never, particularly as the Blues have the funds to pay the £40m it will supposedly take.

Mourinho to replace Blanc?

Elsewhere, Mourinho might be treading on thin ice, but he’s already got another job he could walk into if he’s prematurely given the boot by Chelsea.

Reports state that Paris Saint-Germain are interested in the Special One, as they see him as capable of landing the coveted Champions League; a trophy Laurent Blanc has thus far been unable to hand them.

Koeman criticism

To finish, Southampton boss Ronald Koeman has criticised Mourinho’s style - no, we’re not talking about his dress sense - suggesting that it is too defence-orientated.

Koeman said that Mourinho should strive to have his side’s play more like Arsene Wenger’s. Chelsea fans might well point to the Premier League title sitting in the Stamford Bridge trophy cabinet as a response.
