Chelsea earned a much needed victory on Sunday as they beat Crystal Palace 1-0 at Stamford Bridge. 

The Blues had won just one of their previous 11 games before the visit of The Eagles, but a second half header from Kai Havertz ensured it was the hosts that were victorious.

Graham Potter’s side remain in tenth place in the Premier League table but now sit level on points with Liverpool, who they face next.

The Blues have been extremely busy in the transfer market so far this month with five new faces already arriving at the club.

David Datro Fofana, Benoit Badiashile, Andrey Santos and Joao Felix have already signed, while Ukraine international Mykhaylo Mudryk was unveiled in front of the club’s supporters at half-time during the 1-0 win over Palace on Sunday.

Now, it appears that one of Chelsea’s newest recruits could already be on his way out of the club.

According to Football Insider, The Blues will listen to offers for winger Raheem Sterling.

The 28-year-old was one of the first signings made by Todd Boehly when he took charge of the club last summer, arriving from rivals Manchester City in a deal worth £47.5 million.

Sterling hasn’t played since being forced off injured against former club Manchester City earlier this month

Sterling arrived in London having scored more than 130 goals and won 12 trophies during his time in Manchester.

Six months into his career at Stamford Bridge, though, the England international has struggled to impress and could be allowed to leave.

It is claimed that Chelsea will allow the player to leave for the right price, despite the Englishman having signed a five-year deal when he joined the club last summer.

Sterling has been a regular this term making 22 appearances across all competitions, although he has only scored six goals so far.

Despite his poor form in front of goal, the winger’s tally of four Premier League goals is bettered only by Havertz in terms of the Chelsea squad.

A number of Chelsea’s other players, including Christian Pulisic and Hakim Ziyech, have also been linked with moves away from the club.

The report also claims that Chelsea’s spending will likely continue this month, with more new arrivals planned before the window shuts at the end of January.
