Chelsea owner Todd Boehly’s transfers to Stamford Bridge ranked in 10, from £60m fourth-choice left-back Marc Cucurella to Raheem Sterling, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Antonio Rudiger’s replacement Kalidou Koulibaly


Chelsea had a torrid season in Todd Boehly’s first year as owner despite all his splash in the transfer market.

Since the US billionaire took over with investment firm Clearlake Capital, more than £300million has been spent on transfers for the senior and development teams.

But Chelsea had a nightmarish season

This has included big name names such as Raheem Sterling, Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang and Kalidou Koulibaly while emerging talents including Carney Chukwuemeka have also arrived.

However, the sacking of Thomas Tuchel as manager and shocking form saw the Blues drop to tenth in the Premier League table and ten points off the top four.

FA Cup and Carabao Cup exits mean the Champions League is their only chance for silverware this season.

Benoit Badiashile, David Datro Fofana, Andrey Santos and Mykhailo Mudryk have only just signed, and it would be too early to judge their impact, but hopes are high for all four after a busy January.

Fans should also have Christopher Nkunku for next season, with RB Leipzig manager Max Eberl telling Bild TV: “The signs are very, very clear that he is moving to Chelsea.”

But what about those who have had the chance to prove their worth?

Raheem Sterling (£60m) – 6/10

Chelsea were hailed for signing Sterling in July, with the England star becoming a reliable goalscorer at Manchester City, who have extensive Premier League experience.

But that hasn’t quite worked out for the England international, who has scored just six goals in 22 appearances – although that makes him the club’s joint-top scorer this season.

Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang (£10m) – 2/10

Thomas Tuchel brought his former player to Borussia Dortmund on September 2, however, the German’s sacking a week later appears to have had an effect on Aubameyang’s Blues career.

The former Arsenal star hasn’t scored since October 11 and has been linked with a free transfer to Barcelona.

Kalidou Koulibaly (£33m) – 4/10

When Chelsea lost Antonio Rudiger, the arrival of Senegal captain Koulibaly from Napoli was expected as a good replacement. But halfway through the season, he struggles to reach the same heights.

The centre-back struggled to adapt to the Premier League pace and was dribbled past more than any other Blues centre-back (19).

Wesley Fofana (£72m) – 1/10

It might be difficult to give Fofana such a low score considering he has spent most of the season injured, but after joining on August 31 for the summer’s biggest fee of £72million, the start was hugely disappointing for the French centre-back, who has just six appearances to his name.

Time will tell if the former Leicester ace can get fit and fulfill his potential at Stamford Bridge, however.

Marc Cucurella (£60m) – 2/10

It baffled many to see how Cucurella, who cost around £60m, looks completely lost in this Chelsea side, especially given his former boss at Brighton, where he looked terrific, Potter is in charge. from Chelsea.

But Lewis Hall has since taken over the main left-back role while Koulibaly was sent in to replace him against Crystal Palace on Sunday.

With Ben Chilwell injured, that could mean Cucurella is currently the fourth-choice left-back.

Carney Chukwuemeka (£20m) – 7/10

All signs point to the midfielder looking quite the acquisition after some brilliant spells off the bench for the Blues this season.

The 19-year-old has enormous talent and is also a Chelsea fan, arriving from Villa in August, and Potter could have an absolute gem in his hands if he can develop it well.

Joao Felix (£11m loan) – 7/10 then a sharp 2/10

Joao Felix had a memorable start for the wrong reasons

Everything was going so well for Felix’s Chelsea debut. Just a day after arriving from Atletico Madrid on loan, he looked menacing every time he advanced against Fulham, providing a much-needed spark to Chelsea’s attack.

But then he was sent off… for a wildly poorly timed challenge and Chelsea went on to lose to their west London rivals.

The star’s three-game suspension on loan is estimated to have cost around £3million.

Denis Zakaria: (Ready) – 6/10

It took a while for the Switzerland international to convince Potter he deserved a starting spot after arriving from Juventus on loan, but some decent performances eventually got him the nod.

However, disaster struck Fulham in its most unfortunate way when he suffered an injury while looking to regain his stride and was ruled out for a month.
