Chelsea have been by far one of the busiest sides in the Premier League this January transfer window.

For most of this January transfer window, Chelsea have conducted their business with a certain reckless abandon. The Blues have repeatedly made it clear that when it comes to matters involving new owner Todd Boehly, money is no object - and to hell with your twee niceties like Financial Fair Play, too!

Chelsea have spent this winter, and they have spent wildly and without remorse. They have also spent fairly randomly. New signings have been ushered in with little apparent consideration for whether or not they are genuinely needed, and at times it has felt as if Boehly and his ragtag crew of recruitment gurus have resorted to chucking darts in maps and spinning homemade wheels of fortune.

And all of that got us thinking, why just stop at the boundaries of professional football? At this point, why shouldn’t the Blues open up their scouting network to embrace the entire spectrum of human knowledge and existence? Now, obviously, we at 3 Added Minutes aren’t in possession the entire spectrum of human knowledge and existence - if you couldn’t already tell - but we do have access to Wikipedia, and we do know where the ‘Random Article’ button is.

After all, if pressing shuffle and hoping for the best is good enough for Mr. Boehly, it’s good enough for us. So, without further ado, here are twenty... things that Chelsea could look to make Deadline Day swoops for, according to the wisdom of Wikipedia...
