Before then, the transfer rumours have been a major source of sports news, with teams still aiming to improve their squad for next season.
And even though the action has returned, that has not stopped reports from emerging claiming Blue are already looking ahead to next season.
With that in mind, here are the latest transfer rumours from Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea have been handed a boost in their pursuit of Kai Havertz after Bayer Leverkusen sporting director Rudi Voller admitted their attacking star may leave the club this summer.
The Blues have been strongly linked with the youngster in recent weeks, although Frank Lampard recently confirmed no bid for the German had been made.
“We have an agreement: if it fits, he can go this summer,” Voller told German media outlet Bild, via football.london.
“As of now, he is a player of ours. We have our ideas, we know what he can do. I personally hope that he stays one more year.
“Of course, you can’t force anyone. Havertz knows what he owes to his colleagues, the fans and the club.”
