The London club, who top the Premier League have dipped into the market to strengthen their squad on deadline day. The big signing is the much sought-after midfielder Juan Cuadrado from Fiorentina. This deal will see Mohammed Salah join Fiorentina on loan. The third deal Chelsea have completed is the sale of Andre Schurrle to Wolfsburg. They are thought to have raised around £25million from the sale of the German forward.

Jose Mourinho will be overjoyed if these three deals go through without any complications as it will see him trim to squad players wages of the wage bill and Schurrle’s sale should just about cover the cost of signing Cuadrado. All in all Mourinho has managed to sign the player he wants, without losing an awful lot. Andre Schurrle’s goalscoring qualities were obvious, but Mourinho’s system at Chelsea suits harder working players. Cuadrado will fit in perfectly.

Chelsea fans are sceptical of Schurrle’s sale, but excited by the prospect of Cuadrado. Here’s how the fans are reacting:
