  1. Victor Moses

    Still just 21, Moses' displays for Wigan attracted interest from Chelsea prior to 2012-13; the European Champions looking to bolster their attacking options with young talent, having already signed Eden Hazard and Oscar over the summer. Having had four previous bids rejected, the Blues finally secured a deal reported to be worth £10m on 24 August 2012. Having watched the 2012 UEFA Super Cup as an unused substitute, Moses made his debut in a goalless draw against Queens Park Rangers on 15 September. He scored on his full debut ten days later, scoring the sixth goal as Chelsea beat Wolverhampton Wanderers 6-0 in the League Cup. Goals against Swansea City and Shakhtar Donetsk followed in early November; the latter injury-time goal effectively keeping alive Chelsea's hopes of qualifying from the UEFA Champions League group stage. The win would ultimately prove futile, as Chelsea finished third in the group with a 3-0 loss to Juventus in the next match proving to be the killer blow. The defeat in Turin cost manager Roberto Di Matteo his job, and Moses' first team prospects improved following the hiring of Rafael Benítez on an interim basis, with the Spaniard evidently preferring the Nigerian's direct play to Oscar's artistry; Di Matteo having consistently favoured an attacking midfield trio of Juan Mata, Oscar and Eden Hazard. Moses generally made the most of his increased opportunities, cementing his popularity with the Chelsea fans with his impressive displays and goals in the cups against Leeds United and Southampton.

Returning to Porto for the 2012-13 season, he went on to make nine starts and eight substitute appearances over the course of the season, scoring once. On 1 September 2013 Chelsea confirmed that Atsu had signed for the club and would spend the season on loan at Vitesse Arnhem. The fee was reported to be £3.5m. He immediately became a first choice starter in a central attacking midfield position, playing alongside Lucas Piazon and displacing Gael Kakuta from the Vitesse side. Click here to view the record
  7. Oriol Romeu

    Reports began to link Romeu with a move to Chelsea on 22 July 2011. The following day, he agreed terms for his transfer, pending a medical or personal terms as he was away on international duty at the 2011 FIFA U-20 World Cup. On 4 August the English club announced the completion of the transfer, with the player signing a four-year contract in a deal worth 5 million. The deal also gave Barcelona first refusal via a buy back option should Chelsea deem him surplus to requirements, seeing Barcelona pay 10 million in 2012 or 15 million in 2013 to bring him back to the Camp Nou he was given the number 6 shirt for the 201112 season. Romeu made his official debut for Chelsea on 10 September 2011, being brought on as a substitute in the 79th minute of the 21 away win against Sunderland. He received his first start on the 21st, in a 00 draw (penalty shootout win) against Fulham for the season's Football League Cup. His first UEFA Champions League appearance came on 19 October 2011, playing the full 90 minutes in a 50 group stage home win against K.R.C. Genk. He also added 76 minutes in the second game between the two teams, a 11 draw in Belgium. The opportunity for his first start for Chelsea in the Premier League was against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 26 November 2011, putting in a solid performance in a 30 home win. He retained his position for the following league game, against Newcastle United at St. James' Park, which finished with the same score. In December 2011, Chelsea issued a statement regarding the deal surrounding Romeu's buy back clause with Barcelona. The statement highlighted that FC Barcelona did not have an automatic buy back clause as first suggested, only having first refusal on any deal if Chelsea wanted to sell him in the future. On 25 September 2012 Romeu scored his first goal for Chelsea, taking a penalty in a 60 win against Wolves at Stamford Bridge for the season's League Cup. Manager Roberto Di Matteo stated that the departures of Yossi Benayoun, Michael Essien and Raul Meireles would mean more playing opportunities for the Spaniards; however, on 11 December, he suffered a knee injury in a game against Sunderland, being sidelined for the rest of the season.

  8. Gaël Kakuta

    Coming through the RC Lens academy in his native France, the Lille-born youngster could easily have seen Coupe de France time in 2007-08 if he was to stay, but the allure and attraction of Chelsea was enough for the youngster to come over. Kakuta moved to Chelsea in 2007 and became a player for the youth team. He impressed at Chelsea after his first reserve game alongside teammate Michael Ballack. The German international told journalists, "Go see the French lad, he is the star". Kakuta soon began to flourish earning the Academy Scholar of the Year award after his first season with Chelsea. He was also voted Academy Player of the Year after finishing as the top scorer in the youth side finishing his first Chelsea season with 12 goals in 24 appearances. This included a hat trick against Port Vale in the FA Youth Cup. For the 200809 season, Kakuta was given the opportunity to train with the first team, though he was still limited to playing with the club's reserve team. In February 2009, Kakuta saw his progress come to a shuddering halt when he suffered a double ankle fracture in a friendly against the Glenn Hoddle Academy. Kakuta missed six months returning to the team in August for a youth game against local side Queens Park Rangers. On 1 September 2009, Chelsea manager Carlo Ancelotti added Kakuta to his Champions League squad. Kakuta made his much anticipated Premier League debut during a home match against Wolverhampton Wanderers on 21 November 2009 as a substitute replacing Nicolas Anelka on the hour, impressing largely with his tricks, skills, pace and enthusiasm. On 2 December 2009, he came on as a half-time substitute for Joe Cole during the quarter-final match of the League Cup against Blackburn Rovers losing on penalties when he missed the decisive penalty in the shoot-out. On 8 December 2009, he made his Champions League debut against APOEL. He became the youngest Chelsea player to ever represent the club in the Champions League. He played 73 minutes before being substituted by Fabio Borini. The match ended in a 22 draw. Carlo Ancelotti was not satisfied with the team's performance but was very positive about the French youth international: "We had no intensity and no concentration, it was a very bad game from us. The only positive of the night was Gaël Kakuta. He played very well, he showed his fantastic talent. He trains very well everyday and will be the future of Chelsea." On 11 September 2010, he played his second Premier League game for Chelsea in a derby against West Ham United, coming on as a substitute for Nicolas Anelka in the 76th minute. Kakuta also made an appearance in the Champions League match against MSK Zilina on 15 September 2010. On 22 September, Kakuta started a match in the League Cup and coming off at halftime in a match which ended 43 to Newcastle. He then provided the assist for a seventh minute John Terry goal in a 20 win over Olympique Marseille. On 21 December 2010, Kakuta signed a new four-and-a-half year contract with Chelsea, committing himself to the club until 2015. Kakuta expressed his desire to leave because he says he is unwilling to sit on the bench for another year. Kakuta joined Bolton Wanderers on loan for the first half of the 2011-12 season, but struggled to make an impact, making just six appearances in his spell at the club. He joined French club Dijon for the second half of the season where he was much more successful, scoring 5 goals in 14 appearances for the Burgandy side. He spent the 2012-13 season on loan again, this time in the Netherlands for Vitesse Arnhem. As part of the relationship between Chelsea and Vitesse, a number of young Blues have spent time on loan at the Geldredome and Kakuta was joined by Tomas Kalas and Patrick van Aanholt during his time there. After an initially slow start, Gael became a regular for a team chasing for the title and weighed in with a goal and seven assists as they qualified for the Europa League.
