Chelsea have made just two signings in this window, and given it’s unlikely Rob Green will ever play a solitary competitive minute for the club, it may as well be one.
There’s just a week of the transfer window left now, and that’s lead to Chelsea fans starting to wonder just how much more business we’re going to do. Just check out these Tweets as an example:
Looking at this point that Jorginho will be our only first team signing.
Still a better summer than the one when we only brought in Quique De Lucas on a free.
The emergence of Hudson-Odoi feels like a new signing also.
Will get behind the team as I've always done.

According to that poll, 21% of Chelsea fans think we won’t make another signing for the first team this summer.
That still seems pretty unlikely. As much as the young players are providing great options for the new boss, and as happy as he appears to be to work with what he has, there are too many holes to fill for us to not sign a single player.
If we sell Thibaut Courtois we’re absolutely certain to bring in a new keeper, but even if we don’t, there’s depth needed at right back and on the wing, and a top striker is still desperately lacking.
We can’t be certain – nobody knows for sure, in fact – but it would be truly shocking if we don’t bring it at least one player before the window shuts.
