Chelsea ‘consider’ early loan recall, Arsenal ‘open talks’ for £17m winger

All the latest Chelsea transfer news.

After six games this season, Chelsea have amassed 10 points.

An opening day victory from the Blues has been followed up with a run of patchy form that has encompassed two defeats in their last four outings, with losses to Leeds United and Southampton already under their belt this term.

With an extended break currently underway, however, Graham Potter will be hoping that he and his side are able to put in the work needed to recapture their best form once they return to action early next month.
