The January transfer window saw Chelsea bring in some players, as some also left the club on loan.
Major ins: Olivier Giroud (Arsenal, £18m), Ross Barkley (Everton, £15m plus add-ons), Emerson Palmieri (Roma, £17.6m)
Major outs: Michy Batshuayi (Dortmund, loan), Kenedy (Newcastle, loan), Baba Rahman (Schalke, loan), Charly Musonda (Celtic, loan)
Sky Sports pundit Paul Merson has given Chelsea an A+ grade for a wonderful activity in the January transfer market.
The Sky Sports pundit and former Arsenal star is known for his strong opinions, but thinks Chelsea’s business in the January transfer window was excellent.
Merson said: “To get Giroud for that price, it’s a cup of tea, that is. He could keep Alvaro Morata out of the team, he really could. I’m a big fan of Barkley as well, even though I know he splits opinion. Emerson is decent as well and getting Batshuayi and Kenedy out is good business. Antonio Conte should be happy with what they’ve done.”
