By Obinna Okenesi

The transfer deadline day in Major leagues in Europe apart fron Spanish La Liga  has gone everyone who has tried to force a move or stay away from his present club will have to wait till January before they can make the move.

A host of players rejected to play for champions Chelsea this season and we can’t really tell why, probably because it is a World cup year or because Conte doesn’t really rotate his starting eleven as he played thirteen major olayers throughout last year campaign without European football.

Here are five players who appear to have rejected the advances of Chelsea this transfer window as major transfer targets have been missed out on. 

Romelu Lukaku

Romelu Lukaku is one time Chelsea star who was tip to return to Stamford Bridge for the second time to create a great thing at the West London side.

However, the Chelsea move was hijacked by the former club boss Jose Mourinho as the player chose Manchester United at the last minute of the £75m move to Old Trafford, instead of  Antonio Conte's side.

The Belgian ace heavily impressed in his time at Goodison Park, scoring twenty-five league goals last season, and was in-demand this summer as a move away looked inevitable.

Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain

Oxlade-Chamberlain who has been locked in contract negotiations with Arsenal for much of the summer, but the England international have reject a £180,000-a-week deal at Emitrate Stadium.

Chelsea bid £40m  Arsenal midfielder it was accepted by the Gurnners, but the 24-year-old reject a move to Stamford Brigde instead to dream move to Anfiled after he was not a grauntee a cerntal midfield at West London.

He held out for his preferred move to Liverpool, and with a similar bid accepted by Arsenal and a medical completed, the transfer to Anfield has now gone through.


Danilo was yet another player to reject the advances of Chelsea this summer, choosing Pep Guardiola and Manchester City instead as he left Real Madrid in a £26.5m move.

Just to really rub it in, the Brazilian then claimed it was an easy decision to say no to Chelsea.

"It wasn’t a difficult decision to choose City over Chelsea. The moment City called me and Pep called me, I knew what I had to do."


Fernando Llorente

Fernando Llorente rejects Chelsea move to London rival Tottenham for a fee reported to be £15 million.

The 32-year-old rejected the chance to join Chelsea, who also made a late bid of £15m for the Spanish striker. He becomes Tottenham’s second deadline-day signing after Serge Aurier signed earlier in the day from PSG.

Llorente joined Swansea last summer and scored 15 goals for the club, helping the Swans to avoid Premier League relegation.


Ross Barkley

Everton midfielder of Nigerian descent Ross Barkley has astonishingly rejected a £35m move to join Victor Moses at Chelsea after changing his mind during his medical, according to Sky Sports.

With the transfer window drawing to a close on Thursday evening, news emerged that the Toffees had agreed on a fee to sell Barkley to the reigning Premier League champions. The 23-year-old and his agent had traveled to London and an agreement was reached on a move to Stamford Bridge.

Barkley begun his medical, only to have second thoughts, and opted against the move. He is now expected to return to Everton.
