Chelsea are always good value during transfer windows whether it’s buying or selling players.
Last January saw the shock departure of Juan Mata to Manchester United whilst the sale of Kevin De Bruyne to Wolfsburg was also an inspired piece of business considering the massive profit they made on the Belgian’s sale.
There have been some big incomings as well, some more successful than others.
It seems for every Nemanja Matic, there has been a Mohamed Salah as well as an occasional wildcard such as the loan capture of Ricardo Quaresma – remember him?

Here we have identified five potential surprise deals that could still go through before the deadline on February 2nd.
