Chelsea’s five worst January signings and what happened to them

Chelsea has been linked with a number of names in the transfer window, but Thomas Tuchel will be wary of repeating some of the club’s previous January signings.

Chelsea supporters will be hoping for some new faces to join the squad during the January transfer window.

While big-money deals are unlikely this month, Thomas Tuchel will be on the lookout for any potential ways to bolster his squad further. He signed Romelu Lukaku for a club-record fee of £97.5 million during the summer, and while big-money deals are unlikely this month, the German manager will be on the lookout for any potential ways to bolster his squad further.

January is widely regarded as a difficult window for clubs to make signings, and Chelsea, like many other clubs across the country, has made mistakes in the past.

With that in mind, Brinkwire Sport has looked at five of Chelsea’s most dreadful signings and what happened to them.

Torres’ £50 million move from Liverpool to Stamford Bridge has been nothing short of a disaster.

Sadly, the Spaniard’s heroics at Anfield were not replicated at Chelsea, and he never really got going.

Torres’ Chelsea career never took off, despite showing glimpses of his potential with some crucial contributions in the Champions League.

After a loan spell at AC Milan and a stint at boyhood club Atletico Madrid failed to revive his Chelsea career, Diego Simeone came calling for a permanent deal in 2016.

Let us know which of these signings you thought was the worst in the comments section.

Di Santo, a highly rated forward from Chilean club Audax Italiano, moved to the Premier League in 2008.

After a lackluster loan spell at Blackburn, Di Santo was sold to Wigan just two seasons later.

Di Santo made a total of 16 appearances for Chelsea, but did not score a single goal.

Di Santo has spent time in Germany, Spain, and Brazil since then, but he is now back in Argentina, playing football for San Lorenzo.

Miazga secured a dream transfer to the Premier League in 2016 after impressing in the MLS with the New York Red Bulls.

Since then, Miazga has only appeared twice for the Blues in his five-year stay at the club, and neither of his appearances have shown signs of a future Premier League player.

Miazga, like countless others, is a teenager.

The news is summarized by Brinkwire.
