Chelsea could reportedly smash through the £100million barrier before the January transfer window even opens.
The Blues already have agreements in place for Christopher Nkunku and David Datro Fofana, the latter of whom is seen as a star of the future.
Andrey Santos is set to be the latest addition to Chelsea’s growing academy, but the Brazilian won’t come cheap.
According to French outlet Le10 Sport, Chelsea may end up spending £35m on Santos due to bonuses and add-ons.
With Nkunku costing £60m – albeit not until next summer – and Fofana’s deal working out to just under £10m, Chelsea have already spent big.
