Poch wants more Chelsea signings
Football Transfer Centre

Chelsea manager Mauricio Pochettino is reportedly planning for three signings during the January transfer window.

The Blues spent close to £400 million on players over the summer, but they continue to struggle in the Premier League.

The inexperience in the squad has been costing him and Pochettino wants to find a solution at the beginning of next year.

He has urged the hierarchy to pursue a marquee striker. A centre-back and a goalkeeper could also be sought in the market.

There are no stand-out targets at the moment, but Chelsea continue to hold a long-term interest in Brentford star Ivan Toney.

The Englishman netted 21 goals in the last campaign before being banned for eight months for breaching FA betting rules.

He will be back by the middle of January and it is left to be seen whether the Blues can persuade Brentford into selling him.

Brentford could ask as much as £80 million for the experienced marksman, who is also on the radar of London rivals Arsenal.
