This current injury crisis at Chelsea has shown why Thomas Tuchel’s Chelsea team could make some great additions in the winter transfer window to provide quality depth.
Chelsea are sitting in the number one position in the Premier League table with 26 points after eleven matches played. Chelsea are leading second-place Manchester City by three points.
Below is a list of three players Chelsea could sign in the winter transfer window
Chelsea and Newcastle United are among the Premier League clubs who have been alerted to the possibility of signing Belgium attacker Eden Hazard from Real Madrid in the winter transfer window.
The former Chelsea star has been struggling to get some playing minutes at Real Madrid due to the rise of Vinicius Junior, who plays the same position as the Belgian national team captain.

One of the fastest-rising football talents in the world, Federico Chiesa, has found himself being linked with a transfer move to Chelsea. Chelsea are following the situation closely for any opportunity to go for the Italian winger.
Federico Chiesa is very versatile and the 24-year-old attacker could play in many positions in the attacking department, as well as a wide midfielder.
The value of Federico Chiesa has increased since he signed for Juventus to €70 million, and Chelsea needs to be able to offer a fee of around that price to be able to convince the Italian club.

Matthijs de Ligt
Another Juventus star is on the list of Chelsea’s transfer targets in the winter transfer window. Matthijs de Ligt could be on his way to Chelsea in January, with the club preparing for the departure of Antonio Rudiger.
It is almost certain that Antonio Rudiger will leave at the end of the season as a free agent, with his contract running out in June. Matthijs de Ligt seems like the perfect replacement for the German defender.
Matthijs de Ligt could cost Chelsea a fortune, but the Dutch generational talent will be worth every penny spent on him. Matthijs de Ligt is a great ball-playing defender, and he is good at heading set pieces.
