Mauricio Pochettino has revealed that Chelsea owners are more than open to the idea of improving the squad in January if the right opportunities present themselves.

The Blues spent a whopping £430m on transfers over the summer alone, but it has reflected very little on the team’s performances since the start of the season, after winning just seven of their first 19 Premier League matches.

There have also been recent reports that claimed Pochettino will not be given any sort of power over who comes and leaves Chelsea in the coming weeks and months, but the Argentine has dismissed the claims as mere rumours, and insists he ‘cannot conceive the idea of not being involved’.

“I cannot conceive the idea of not being involved,” said the Chelsea boss.

“It is not only about my advice. It is about sharing after six months together with the owners and sporting directors.

“It is very good communication. We talk every single day. Of course, the decision that we are going to take is because we all agree.

“If we detect something we need to improve, then we are more than open. We are very analytical and always analyse ourselves to help the club in the best way possible.”
