New owner Todd Boehly, who assumed the role of transfer policy chief after assuming the reins, has splashed the cash to restructure the team.

Todd Boehly has signed a lot of new players as he attempts to wash off all legacies of Roman Abramovich while paving the way for a new beginning.

Other staff and officials, who worked in the Roman Abramovich era have resigned. Former Chelsea legendary goalkeeper Petr Cesc was among those who resigned, including former technical director Marina Granovskaia.

Todd Boehly later axed former manager Thomas Tuchel, who was appointed manager under the mangled reign of Abramovich.

The list of Chelsea 2022/23 signings

Trying to match the feat of rivals such as Liverpool, Manchester City, Manchester United, and Tottenham, who all signed new players in the summer to bolster their squad, Chelsea splashed over £30 million on Napoli center-half Kalidou Koulibaly.

Again, the Blues snapped up Raheem Sterling from Manchester City for just under £50 million to add more momentum to the team’s attack.

They also signed Gabriel Slonina from Chicago Fire for £8miion, including Carney Chukwuemeka from Aston Villa, Cesare Casadei from Inter Milan, Marc Cucurella from Brighton, Wesley Fofana from Leicester City, Pierre-Emerick Aubamenyang from Barcelona, Denis Zakaria, Benoit Badiashile, Andrey Santos, David Datro Fofana, Christopher Nkunku, and Joao Felix.

They have crashed out of the EFL Cup and FA Cup and are currently 10th on the Premier League table with 25 points from 17 matches.

Their last two games against Manchester City ended in back-to-back defeats, compounding the woes of the club and elongating Graham Potters’ winless run.

However, their abysmal display so far can also be attributed to the number of first-team players that have been sidelined by injury.
