5 players who could follow Konoplyanka to Chelsea in January

Back to winning ways against Aston Villa at the weekend, our resident Chelsea supporters in the Football Transfer Tavern are feeling a little better about life than they have done previously this season.

Just their third victory of the Premier League campaign so far, Jose Mourinho’s side are now up in eleventh place although everybody connected with the Blues will still feel incredibly uncomfortable being in the bottom half ot the table at present.

Refusing to be drawn on whether the club could get back into the title race in his post-match interviews after the Villa encounter at the weekend, Mourinho claimed the club will take each game at a time starting with Dynamo Kiev in the Champions League this week.

While the 2-0 victory over Villa was much needed, Chelsea still only managed three goals on target and with the Blues far from firing on all cylinders at the moment, naturally talk has turned to who Mourinho could target in the January transfer window.

With the Portuguese boss also papped away during the international break at the Ukraine versus Spain game to boot, this has done nothing to calm the speculation over prospective Blues targets for the New Year.

One player playing in that game was Sevilla’s Yevhen Konoplyanka who despite only signing for Sevilla in the summer is currently at the middle of a media storm brewing around being a potential signing for Chelsea in January.

With that being the case, we’ve identified five players who could end up following the Ukrainian star to Stamford Bridge in three months’ time.
