The January transfer window has come and gone, and it’s yet to be seen how successful the club was in the market.

According to reports, Antonio Conte wanted Chelsea to revisit failed summer deals for Alexis Sanchez, Virgil van Dijk and Alex Sandro during the January transfer window, but it wasn’t to be as two of his targets went to Manchester United and Liverpool respectively.

However, the Blues came through the winter window having signed AS Roma wing-back Emerson Palmieri, Everton midfielder Ross Barkley and striker Olivier Giroud from Premier League rivals Arsenal.

Chelsea’s recruitment policy has been the bane of Conte’s press conference for months now, as  the Italian has revealed his displeasure at the club’s recruitment policy.

Since the 3-0 defeat at home to Bournemouth, rumours of Conte being sacked has heightened, with claims that the Blues could go for former Barcelona manager Luis Enrique.
