But could Brendan Rodgers’ side be about to do some transfer business with the west London outfit before the January window closes in less than two weeks?

Well, some Blues supporters believe that’s the case.

The surprise name not in the Leicester team to face Burnley is that of left-back Ben Chilwell who has been heavily linked with a big money move to Stamford Bridge.

Speaking ahead of his side’s game against the Clarets, Rodgers ruled out a King Power Stadium for the England international amid links to Southampton’s Ryan Bertrand.

“Ryan’s a player I know very well,” he said, as reported by  LeicestershireLive . “We took him into Chelsea at 16 and he’s had a brilliant career.

“But we’ve got England’s number one left-back, we’ve got a fantastic senior professional here in Christian Fuchs, and we have James Justin who can play left-back as well.
