Gary Cahill replacement: 3 EFL talents Chelsea need to eye ahead of January transfer window



The start of the EFL season has already unveiled some outstanding talents plying their trade in the lower divisions, be it on loan stars from top flight clubs, or emerging players.

In this day and age, extreme talent is often picked up by top flight clubs with little belief they’ll be getting near the first team. A perfect example of this player hoarding can be found at Chelsea, a side that have 40 players out on loan, many of which are in the EFL ranks.

Some Chelsea stars are already proving their worth in the Championship and beyond. Mason Mount has been superb for Derby already this season and he looks to be one who can transition from the EFL to the Chelsea first team with ease.

With the likes of Lewis Baker and Izzy Brown at Leeds, Trevoh Chalobah at Ipswich and even Dujon Sterling at Coventry, the Blues tentacles extends all around the EFL.

That isn’t to say they won’t add to their ranks, if the talent if there. FLW looks at three EFL players that the Premier League giants might consider signing in the January window.
