In many ways, Chelsea fans have been left unimpressed by a lot of the transfer business that has concerned their club so far this summer.
First of all, Petr Cech was allowed to join London rivals Arsenal whom he will undoubtedly strengthen, then of course came the arrival of Radamel Falcao on loan who was a total disaster on a similar deal at Manchester United last season.
Then Asmir Begovic joined which most Chelsea fans were in agreement with then yesterday Patrick Bamford was allowed to join Crystal Palace on loan when Blues fans wanted to see him achieve his breakthrough with them this term.
In the grand scheme of things of course, these worries are nothing major because Chelsea’s squad is pretty much complete compared to the rest but with every transfer window comes a form of obligation to excite the fans with some eye-catching reinforcements.
Jose Mourinho has spoke about wanting one more player this summer and we imagine that player is a centre back with the Blues boss having gone public in his admiration of Everton’s John Stones recently.
With Chelsea having seen a £20 million bid knocked back by the Toffees, the expectation is that the Blues will be giving Roberto Martinez an offer he can’t refuse in a matter of days, if not weeks.
But if that doesn’t come to fruition, what other business could Chelsea be completing this summer because we know not everything Mourinho says can be taken as gospel?
Here are five realistic dream signings that Chelsea would like to see their team conclude in the remainder of the transfer window.
