Chelsea transfer rumours: Mauro Icardi to sign, Alvaro Morata to leave – Fans have their say

Chelsea have their own plans for the January transfer window, but what would the Blues fans like to see happen?

The Blues are going after a striker this month, with plenty like Gonzalo Higuain and Callum Wilson linked.

But we wanted to know who the fans wanted to join the club.

We are nine days into the January transfer window and Chelsea supporters have been having their say on their hopes and dreams come February 1.

We asked you before Christmas what you wanted from Chelsea in this window and almost 2,000 of you have had your say.

Which position(s) need the most attention in January?

There was no surprise when it came to the results of this question.

Of the people who responded to our survey a whopping 90.9% of you said that a striker was one of the positions that needed strengthening this month.

Neither Alvaro Morata nor Olivier Giroud have hit the heights for the Blues so far under Maurizio Sarri, with Eden Hazard often utilised in an unfamiliar number nine role.

We gave you the opportunity to choose more than one position that needed strengthening, and 24.4% went with the forward option, while 24.1% wanted a right winger.

If you could pick one player to sign in January who would it be?

There were a hell of a lot of strikers suggested by supporters on this one.

But one name stood out.

The dream January transfer window signing for Blues fans would appear to be Inter Milan striker Mauro Icardi.

More than a third of people polled named the Argentinian striker as the one that you were most desperate to see arrive at Stamford Bridge this month.

Icardi has notched 13 goals in 25 appearances for Inter this season and was fined by the Italian club for turning up late for training today.

Among the other names to be popular in this vote were Gonzalo Higuain and Edinson Cavani, while a lot of Chelsea fans would like to see Diego Costa return to the club too.

Best Chelsea transfer rumour you’ve heard so far?

There was not much between four players in this category.

Once again Icardi and Higuain were among the favourites, but so were Nabil Fekir and Real Madrid star Isco.

Worst Chelsea transfer rumour you’ve heard so far?

This is where things got a little bit strange.

As while Higuain was one of the best transfer rumours to have been heard, he was a favourite with fans in the worst transfer rumour heard category too.

Eden Hazard leaving the club and Callum Hudson-Odoi departing were also among the transfer rumours that Blues supporters did not want to see happen.

Who would you like to see the club sell in January?

A few names sprung right out of the page when looking over the responses to this question.

Alvaro Morata is the favourite for the chop with Blues supporters, with around 30% suggesting the striker leaves the club.

Danny Drinkwater, Gary Cahill and Willian were the three other names that got a healthy number of votes.

Would you give David Luiz a new deal?

This was the final question on our survey.

Chelsea have a policy of only offering one-year contracts to players when they reach the age of 30.

Luiz has come to the fore under Maurizio Sarri, but at 31 will not get more than a one-year contract extension at Stamford Bridge.

But 70.1% of the fans polled in our survey think he deserves a new deal after this season’s performances.

Chelsea’s transfer plans for January

With the January transfer window in full swing, football.london want to hear from Chelsea fans on the business they want to see from the club in the first month of 2019 and their view on the season so far under Maurizio Sarri.
