Which one player would you poach from… Chelsea?

Use your vote wisely


The scenario: You’re the manager of a Premier League team, and you’re allowed to strengthen your squad by signing just one player in the January transfer window. But you can only choose someone from Chelsea’s star-packed squad – so who do you pick?

Your options: So much talent to choose between, it’s hard to even make a shortlist, let alone reduce Chelski’s squad to just one essential player. JT, Lamps, The Drog, Essien etc. Which one to go for?

There can be only one. Vote below:

This week, you have already voted to poach the following players:

Arsenal: Cesc Febragas

Aston Villa: Ashley Young

Blackburn Rovers: Roque Santa Cruz

Bolton Wanderers: Jussi Jaaskalainen

Each of the four won by a healthy margin. Can’t see that happening with Chelsea – they have too many good players.

    Such a tough one. Switched between Anelka, Malouda and Essien before eventually settling on Bosingwa – now not sure I made the right choice.

    It has to be Essien – the man is a quality footballer no question…

    As a United fan who is very happy with the squad I would still have Essien in a heartbeat..
