The summer transfer window has now closed, with Chelsea among the busiest clubs and biggest spenders in world football.

After two windows without signing a single player, the Blues made up for lost time by splashing well over £200m on the likes of Kai Havertz, Timo Werner, Ben Chilwell, Edouard Mendy and Thiago Silva. Attention will now switch to the January window and whether Chelsea will invest heavily again.

Here, Sports Mole rounds up the latest news on possible comings and goings from Stamford Bridge.

Tuesday morning's Chelsea transfer talk news roundup:


Chelsea 'keeping tabs on RB Leipzig left-back'

RB Leipzig defender Matthew Bondswell has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Chelsea.

The Blues have impressed defensively in recent weeks, with their latest clean sheet coming against Tottenham Hotspur in the Premier League on Sunday evening.

However, Frank Lampard wants to develop his squad at Stamford Bridge, particularly at left-back where Emerson Palmieri and Marcos Alonso have been linked with exits.

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea are keeping an eye on 18-year-old Bondswell, who is currently out on loan at Dordrecht.

While the England Under-18 international is yet to make a first-team outing for Leizpig, the teenager has made an impression in the Dutch second tier this season.

Bondswell has seven months remaining on his contract at his parent club, giving him the opportunity to discuss a move elsewhere at the beginning of 2021.



Joe Cole urges Chelsea to keep Olivier Giroud

Former Chelsea midfielder Joe Cole believes that the Blues should do everything in their power to keep hold of "different class" Olivier Giroud in January.

The veteran Frenchman is currently behind Timo Werner and Tammy Abraham in the Stamford Bridge pecking order, but Giroud demonstrated his importance to the team with a last-gasp winner against Rennes in the Champions League last week.

Giroud continues to be linked with an exit from Chelsea ahead of the upcoming transfer window, but Cole has urged Frank Lampard to make sure that the former Arsenal man remains on the books for the whole of the season.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Cole said: "I think Giroud has been different class and is a massively important part of the squad.

"Frank would love to keep him and Chelsea are in a position where if they don't want him to go he doesn't have to go as he signed a contract. He'll have a big part to play in what will be a successful year for Chelsea."

Giroud is currently in the final year of his deal with Chelsea, where he boasts 30 goals in 96 games since making the switch across the capital from Arsenal in 2018.
