Check out Graham Potter’s response to the question on Chelsea’s January plans

Chelsea manager Graham Potter has refused to reveal whether the Blues will keep looking for new players during the January transfer window.

Nearly £280 was spent on eight new players during the summer, with new owner Todd Boehly keen to revolutionise the squad. That included in excess of £40 on teenage trio Carney Chukwuemeka, Gabriel Slonina and Cesare Casadei.

Already in January, Chelsea have recruited 19-year-old striker David Datro Fofana from Molde.

Reports claim that a deal worth slightly more than £30 million for Monaco center defender Benoit Badiashile has also been reached after attempts to convince RB Leipzig to part with the more costly Josko Gvardiol fail.



However, when asked this week there are any specific roles the Chelsea recruiters are focusing on, Potter declined to share any details.

“The problem is that I answer it and I’ specific with the answer then every single player in that area will be linked with Chelsea so I have to dodge it,’ he said.

“I’ the head coach so my responsibility is to the players that are here and then we’ll try to improve in every window. January is a complicated one because it’s the middle of the season and in the meantime, we have to deal with all the noise of Chelsea being linked with everybody.

“I won’t comment on anyone isn’t a Chelsea player but always my job is to help the players that are here and then support the club in terms of decisions they make in trying to improve.”
