Were they worth the Money ๐Ÿ’ฐ ? January Transfers

There are several times in a season that can set up failure or great success for a campaign and the winter transfer window is one of them. The January transfer window gives squads the chance to bring in a few new players to bolster the squad depth and perform better than before. Conte had a relatively busy transfer window last January, brining in a total of 3 players; all from other EPL clubs.

Emersonย ๐Ÿ‡ฎ๐Ÿ‡น

First on the list is joint-nationality defender Emerson of both Brazil and Italy . The Ex-Roma player cost the Blues โ‚ฌ20 million and has signed with Chelsea until June 2022. The 23 year old is still young and showed masses of potential to grow into a stand out defender in the English division. Emerson quickly became a fans favourite and was able to rack up some game time thanks for Alonso’s suspension. The Italian international has made a total of 4 appearances this Premier League campaign with 2 coming from the bench. Emerson has got 1 assist and maintained an impressive 75% tackle success rate.

Ross Barkleyย ๐Ÿ‡ฌ๐Ÿ‡ง

The ex-Eveeton man at one stage was showing great potential for the years to come but he has since struggled heavily from injury causing a serious lapse in form. ย Barkley has only managed a single appearance since arriving at the Bridge in January, despite being named on the bench multiple times. Ross cost the Blues a total of ยฃ16.94 million and at the age of only 24 years old the Englishman may still find a regular starting place during his Blues career.

Olivier Giroud arrived at the Bridge during January after leaving Arsenal for a figure of โ‚ฌ17 million. The Frenchman was bought to be used as a substitute but has since overtaken the first team spot formally taken by Alvaro Morata. The 31 year old has been in impressive form,particularly ย his brace against Southampton that made Chelsea come back from 2-0 down to winning the match 3-2. The Frenchman has scored 7 goals so far this campaign, including 3 for Chelsea.
