Latest Chelsea transfer rumours: Liverpool battle, Tomori explains decision, Drinkwater interest
Chelsea will now have to wait until January to sign any more players, with the domestic transfer window now closed.
That brings to an end the’ summer dealings, which saw over £200m worth of talent brought into Stamford Bridge.
However, it’s never quiet at Chelsea – and the rumour mill is still very busy as we prepare for the mid-season window in two and a half months.
Here are the very latest Chelsea transfer rumours.
Drinkwater to stay at Blues
Chelsea midfielder Danny Drinkwater is staying at the club after failing to move away from Stamford Bridge this summer.
According to, there was “tentative interest” from the Championship in the former Leicester City man.
However, nothing materialised for, who is yet to be part of any of Frank Lampard’s Premier League squads so far this season.
The 30-year-old moved to the Blues for £35m from Leicester just three years ago, but is almost a forgotten man in West London.
Grimsby boss “fuming” with Blues interest in youngsters
Chelsea and Liverpool are reportedly interested in Grimsby Town duo Louis Boyd and Ben Grist, and Ian Holloway is “fuming”.
The Premier League pair are looking at Boyd and Grist, as well as other sides from the top-flight, according to.
Grimsby boss Holloway is not happy, when speaking to: “Am I surprised at that? No, I’m not surprised at that. Am I fuming about it? Yeah.
“These big wigs who want to take over football on the sly, they’ve already got rules passed that they’re category A clubs, and they can steal these lads off us very, very cheaply, because it suits them, doesn’t it?”

Chelsea defender Fikayo Tomori has explained his decision to remain at Stamford Bridge this season, despite interest from elsewhere.

West Ham United were heavily linked with a move for Tomori earlier this month, but as he explains on the Chelsea Mike’d Up podcast, he wanted to stay put with the Blues.
The Chelsea centre-back said: “I had a plan going into this season going off the back of last season. I made the decision in the end to stay, to improve more, get some more games, gain some more experience and try and get to the levels I was at last season.
“It was one of those situations and, as you all know, I made a decision to stay.”
