Reported Chelsea target will not leave Barcelona this January

Chelsea have been searching the transfer market to bring in a midfielder this month, with reports stating that Moises Caicedo and Enzo Fernandez are the top targets before the window slams shut on 31st January at 11pm.

It’s set to be a frantic final few days of the window, as they say, a never a dull day at Chelsea.
