A Complete Breakdown of Chelsea's 2023 Signings
Chelsea have had a season like no other, not all those reasons are necessarily good. The new owners wasted no time making their ambitions for Chelsea known, with their shopping spree of over  on some big names this summer. We break down every singing they've made in the 2022/23 season, here they are ranked from most expensive...
  • Enzo Fernandez, £106.8m

    After his lightning performance at the World Cup only a few clubs would've been able to afford his extortionate release clause, Chelsea took the leap. Signing an 8-and-a-half-year contract with the blues to help with FFP rules, this signing squashed the previous January deadline day record which was Aubameyang joining Arsenal in 2018, also surpassing that massive payment for Jack Grealish in 2021. Enzo will likely have that price tag looming over him for some time until fans deem him a good signing, no pressure then.
  • Mykhailo Mudryk, £88.5m

    After previously stating in multiple interviews & features, Mudyrk indicated that he was very happy to have received interest from Arsenal, after posting an Instagram Story of him supposedly wearing an Arsenal shirt. Despite this Chelsea almost seemed to hijack the deal, quickly signing the Ukranian shortly after. Mudryk has still yet to find his feet after being substituted at half time in the Fulham draw.
  • Wesley Fofana, £75m

    Leicester City declined Chelsea's bids for Wesley Fofana 3 times before agreeing to the move. Fofana had recently signed a long-term deal with Leicester before receiving the Chelsea offer, eventually not turning up to training to further move the deal along. Is Fofana worth £75m?
  • Marc Cucurella, £60m

    Cucurella has come under fierce criticism as of late, since arriving at Stamford Bridge. High price tags will usually open you up to greater criticism from fans and pundits alike. The Spaniard has since said that after the January transfer window, the blues now have all the tools they need for a late push to the top 4.
  • Raheem Sterling, £47.5m

    On paper, this looked like a great signing, just what Chelsea needed but Raheem Sterling is another signing failing to find the same form they did last season. Sterling moved to Stamford Bridge in search of more first-team football, after falling out of favour at the ever-competitive Manchester City.
  • Benoit Badiashile, £35m

    At the young age of 22, Badiashile already reeks of top flight, Champions League & Europa League football, also finding his place in the French squad. At 16, Thierry Henry was the first coach to give him a chance in the senior team & continues to look like a great developing player but has been the victim of being cut from the 25-man CL squad.
  • Kalidou Koulibaly, £33m

    Expected to be a reliable signing the bolster the blues back, Koulibaly has struggled to hit the ground running like a lot of the other Chelsea signings, falling short to standout performers such as Tiago Silva & Benoit Badiashile
  • Noni Madueke, £29m

    Labelled 'among the best young attackers in Europe', Madueke's final coach Ruud van Nistelrooy held this talent in high regard as one of his important players. Noni Madueke is definitely one to watch for the future

  • Malo Gusto, £26m

    An exciting young talent who has been loaned back out for development.

  • Carney Chukwuemeka, £20m

    Signed for Chelsea after declining a contract from Aston Villa, this youngster claims there will be no complacency in reaching the top of his game.

  • Andrey Santos, £18m

    The Brazilian is still searching for a loan move due to his work permit status leaving him unable to play for Chelsea.

  • Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang, £10.3m

    Not the dream return to the Premier League for Aubameyang, the Chelsea man is struggling to solidify a place in the starting XI and his future remains unpredictable. He has been in and out of the squad since January, even being left out of the Champions League 26 man squad.

  • Joao Felix (LOAN), £9.7m

    After an unconventional start seeing himself dealing with a suspension from his first game, the star has looked better in recent weeks but has not had the desired effect fans were expecting, is it too late to turn it around?

  • Gabriel Slonina, £9m

    Arriving with plenty of potentials, but being purchased with the context of development. When will Slonina get his break over Kepa & Mendy?

  • David Datro Fofana, £8m

    Speculated to be going out on loan in January, Fofana has indeed stayed for the rest of the seasons. The blues aren't holding much depth in the center-forward position.

  • Denis Zakaria (LOAN)

Is it too late for Graham Potter & Chelsea to turn their season around? Let us know below.
