The January transfer window may seem a long way away, but trust us when we say it will roll around soon enough. With that in mind, here’s the three players Chelsea can be expected to try and sign. Number three is Real Madrid star Isco. Speculative, yes. Unlikely, yes. Strongly rumored? Also yes. Jose Mourinho is reportedly after more creative flair. They don’t come much more creative than this man, we’ll assure you of that. In at number two is a player who would provide a similar remedy to Mourinho’s problem, though he’s from the other side of Madrid. Atletico star Koke is thought to be available for £40m and the Special One is interested. Excited? You should be. For number one look no further than Everton’s John Stones. The England centre-back was diligently pursued by Chelsea in the summer without much luck. Only a fool would assume Mourinho has given up the hunt.
