Chelsea new signings: Confirmed ins and outs for Summer 2024

In this article, we take you through all of the Chelsea confirmed signings for this summer, as well as departures. The Blues have a new manager taking centre stage in former Leicester City boss Enzo Maresca, after the departure of Mauricio Pochettino at the end of the 2023/24 season.

They will be aiming to improve on their sixth-placed finish from the last campaign, and try to win a trophy after losing out in the Carabao Cup final 1-0 to Liverpool.

Estevao Willian is Chelsea's most expensive signing of the summer so far, joining from Brazilian club Palmeiras in a deal that could reach up to £51m including add-ons. However, the 17-year-old wonderkid will not move to Stamford Bridge until the summer of 2025. The Blues' second-most expensive signing is Kiernan Dewsbury-Hall for £30m. The former Leicester City central midfielder is a player that Marseca knows very well from his time at the Foxes.

Other deals Chelsea have completed include youngster Omari Kellyman, who has joined from Aston Villa for £19m, as Ian Maatsen departed the other way for £37.5m. Promising young forward Marc Guiu has also joined from FC Barcelona after Chelsea decided to activate his release clause. The Blues' first summer signing was Tosin Adarabioyo, with the central defender joining on a free transfer after his contract expired at West London rivals Fulham.

Chelsea transfer window rating so far: B-

Compared to other teams in the Premier League, Chelsea have done a lot of business so far, and so they deserve a high rating. They have strengthened in several areas of the pitch, but perhaps still need to bring in a goalkeeper and striker.

Indeed, Robert Sanchez was injured for a lot of last season and failed to convince when he did play, while Nicolas Jackson is still raw and not the finished product up front. Take a look through the reported Chelsea transfer targets for this summer as well, as it seems as if the Blues are not finished with their business just yet.
