Who should Chelsea purchase this January?

Will Abramovich step in again for Chelsea this January?Last January saw Roman Abramovich try to take control of the transfers and he purchased Liverpool’s Fernando Torres for £50m. At the time it may have seen like a desperate move to get the Chelsea bandwagon moving again, it didn’t work and some twenty league appearances later, Torres still hasn’t found any sort of form worth talking about.

As always Chelsea are not afraid to splash the cash if need be and there looks to be a deal for Gary Cahill in place already. With Drogba, amongst others ready to head to Africa, and Anelka looking to be heading somewhere in China, one could assume that Chelsea will want a striker with immediate effect but the Higuain deal looks to be one that will only materialise seriously next summer.

Here are some players that Chelsea have been linked with over the last few months:

Gonzalo Higuain
Hulk
Gary Cahill
Edinson Cavani
Milos Krasic

Which positions do you feel Chelsea manager Andre Villas Boas should be looking to strengthen and if so, which players would fit in well at Stamford Bridge?

    Chelsea need a player who can fix into lampard position, players like pastore or harzard. Order areas like attack, gomis who player for lyon to come and replace drogba and finally side 3 perrera for cole

    First lets comment on the problems, as the lost to Aston Villa was disgraceful. Up front Drogba had another bad game, he is not the same player & time to move on. Sturridge has looked good most games, but keeps taking bad options, he has to learn when to pass, instead of trying impossible shots ( But I still like him ). Terry & Luiz cant player as central defenders together and midfield lacks spark. Mata is fantastic, but we are not getting enough ball to him. We badly need the creative midfielder/playmaker and have so for awhile and decent wide players who can get to byline and do proper crosses. Luis would be better in midfield, Mata in behind twin strikers and leave romelu as holding midfielder. Piazon looks a great prospect, I think he is a star in the making and can’t wait until he turns 18. Why hasn’t Josh been given a chance this year. As for new signings happy with Cahill to partner terry. Get new right back-van Der wiel, perhaps Hazard or someone like him in midfield, quality wide player, maybe Krasic and onje more forwarde Hulk/Higuian. Sell off: Ferriara, Drogba, Malouda, Kalou, Alex. Let me know your thoughts.

    then fernando reges, he is good
    get hulk and higuain. avb should play 4-2-2-2
    van der wiel-terry-cahill-a.cole
    romeu-ramires/reges
    sturridge-mata
    higuain-hulk
    buy sergi roberto cuenca for substitutes
    sell drogba paulo malouda etc. make bosingwa into a right mid. he will be much better
