Here in the Football Transfer Tavern, the winter is closing in. We have got the mulled wine on order and are taking requests for the festive period.
It is not only our landlord who has his work cut out for him. Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is looking to bolster his squad this January, and has his eye on all the top leagues across Europe.
Names have been thrown around from Spain, Italy and Portugal, but it is Germany and the Bundesliga that is really keeping us on our toes. There are former Bundesliga stars and German internationals invading the Premier League now, and Chelsea have their fair share of them, boasting the likes of Andre Schurrle. There is also Mesut Ozil just across London, and many more seem to be on their way.
Mourinho is now looking to the future – and wants top quality young players to add to his side.
There seems no better place to look at the minute than the Bundesliga – and with that in mind, we have taken a look at five stars from the German top flight who are on the radar of Chelsea and Jose Mourinho this winter.
