Chelsea are looking to make up for lost time in the transfer window after their ban prevented them from bringing fresh faces in the summer.
But with that ban now lifted, the Blues are free to sign who they want this month.
It’s not just new recruits who could be heading to Stamford Bridge, but departures are also likely this month.
With that in mind, here is the latest Chelsea rumours round-up below.

Ake deal off
Chelsea have cooled their interest in Bournemouth centre-back Nathan Ake.
Frank Lampard’s side have been linked with a move for the Dutchman, with the Blues inserting a £40million buy-back clause in the deal which took the defender to the Cherries in 2017.
But according to the London Evening Standard , Chelsea are unlikely to trigger the clause this month as Lampard has doubts over whether Ake is the right fit for the high defensive line he prefers to play with.

Chelsea have been offered a boost in their bid to secure the services of Dani Olmo this month after Barcelona ended their interest in the winger.
The Catalan giants were believed to be the front runners for Olmo’s signature but have now pulled out of the race to sign the Dinamo Zagreb man, according to The Mail .
The 21-year-old has already hinted he isn’t going to sign an extension to his current contract which runs until 2021.
