After successfully appealing their transfer ban, Chelsea are set to make significant additions in January.
Frank Lampard is after four significant signings, with forward and defensive recruits all mooted.
The Blues boss will have a key role in all transfer dealings, with the Mail reporting that Wilfried Zaha, Jadon Sancho, Moussa Dembele and Nathan Ake are all high on Lampard’s list.
Crystal Palace star Zaha has made no secret of his desire to join a Champions League side and Chelsea are certainly in the market for wingers.
Callum Hudson-Odoi has struggled for form after returning from injury, Pedro is expected to move on and Willian is out of contract in the summer.
Lampard has made it clear that he wants the Brazilian to resign but, with Barcelona reportedly circling , he may end up leaving Stamford Bridge.
Sancho is another player who would strengthen Chelsea’s options out wide and the Englishman is widely expected to leave Borussia Dortmund in the summer.
Lyon striker Dembele would provide some competition for top-scorer Tammy Abraham, with current back-ups Olivier Giroud and Michy Batshuayi only netting one league goal between them this season.

Giroud is another player who could depart in January, with Inter Milan said to be eyeing the Frenchman .
At the back, Nathan Ake could be set for a Chelsea return due to a £40m buy-back clause they inserted into the deal which saw him join Bournemouth in 2017.
The clause is set to expire at the end of the season, meaning the Blues only have the January window to take advantage of it.
