Chelsea return to action on Saturday as they travel to Merseyside to face Liverpool. 

Both sides have struggled so far this season, with Chelsea winning just twice in their last 12 matches across all competitions.

The Reds, meanwhile, have been beaten by both Brentford and Brighton in their last two Premier League games, so the match at Anfield on Saturday afternoon will have added incentive.

The Blues have been one of the top flight’s busiest clubs so far this transfer window, with five new signings arriving at Stamford Bridge.

Joao Felix, David Datro Fofana, Benoit Badiashile, Andrey Santos and Mykhaylo Mudryk have all joined Chelsea, but it now appears that a sixth January signing could be on his way.

According to Rik Elfrink via Fabrizio Romano, PSV Eindhoven winger Noni Madueke is set to join the London club.

It is claimed that the Premier League club decided to pursue a move for the Englishman despite the arrival of Mudryk over the weekend.

Madueke, 20, has impressed in the Dutch top flight, scoring 11 goals and providing nine assists in the Eredivisie since joining PSV back in 2018.

The forward spent time with Tottenham Hotspur as a youngster but left The Lilywhites having failed to make a single senior appearance for the club.

He initially spent time in the academy setup in Eindhoven, before progressing into the first team.

Since then, he has made 80 senior appearances for the Dutch side, scoring 20 goals.

Madueke’s arrival would appear to suggest that one of Chelsea’s current crop of attackers could be on his way out, as his arrival takes the number of attackers that have joined the club this month to four.

It is claimed that personal terms have already been agreed between Chelsea and Madueke, with a deal expected to be finalised soon.

The Blues could reportedly pay as much as £35 million to land the player, who is contracted to PSV until 2025 at present.
