Chelsea Ready To Spend Big In January Transfer Window Despite Technical Director Michael Emanelo’s Shocking Resignation

Chelsea are planning a major spending spree in the January transfer window and their approach will not be altered despite the shocking resignation of technical director Michael Emenalo.

The Blues will continue with their efforts to try to sign a target man striker and will try again to sign Everton midfielder Ross Barkley, even though he turned them down in the summer.

Chelsea are also interested in Juventus left back Alex Sandro and could launch a huge bid for him.

Chelsea manager Antonio Conte was far from pleased last summer after missing out on a number of his top targets, including Romelu Lukaku, Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, Fernando Llorente and Barkley.

Director Marina Granovskaia has already been in talks with agents and clubs regarding January transfers and she will take sole responsibility for incoming deals now that Emenalo has gone.

Chelsea have drawn up a list of target men who could either deputise for or play alongside Alvaro Morata.

Crystal Palace striker Christian Benteke, who is liked by Antonio Conte and is close friends with Eden Hazard, is one potential target and the Blues have also scouted Red Star Belgrade’s Richmond Boakye.
