The Chelsea transfer mill continues to churn out news on potential transfers for players linked with moves away from Stamford Bridge.

The likes of Fikayo Tomori, Antonio Rudiger and Lucas Piazon have all heavily been linked with moves. Despite shoring up each department in the summer, Chelsea seem to be in the hunt for long-term reinforcements.

The hope is that, through the sales received for club outcasts and fringe players, they can break the bank once again to lure players. After all, the team is stacked with world-class players who can land many trophies in the coming years.

We look at the top transfer stories surrounding Chelsea from January 12.

As per reports from Birmingham Mail, Chelsea will not let go of Ross Barkley for any price under £30 million.

He has missed Premier League action since November due to a hamstring injury. Barkley could add value to Chelsea's midfield soon, and hence, they have slapped a massive price tag if Villa want to make his switch permanent.
