All the latest transfer rumours surrounding Chelsea ahead of the January window.

The Premier League title race looks set to be one of the closest in years and, as such, clubs like Chelsea will be eager to gain any advantage they can in the January transfer window.

Romelu Lukaku, Saul Niguez and Marcus Bettinelli were the only new additions in the summer as Thomas Tuchel looked to tweak the side that took the Blues to Champions League glory in May.

A domestic title will be on the German’s wishlist this term but both Manchester City and Liverpool look well placed to challenge, too.

Rumours are already beginning to swirl ahead of the January transfer window, with Chelsea linked to a number of new faces, while current players could also be on their way out.

We take you through the most recent rumours.

The exciting attacking midfielder recently rejected a new deal with Fulham and he is understood to be interested in the potential move to the Premier League.
