Chelsea are yet to make a signing during the January transfer window.
Frank Lampard’s striker pursuit has so far failed to bear any fruit, which has stalled a potential exit for Olivier Giroud.
Whilst Krzysztof Piatek joining Hertha Berlin, Chelsea have pursued other avenues and could still add to their striking department before the end of the month.
With the club hopeful of at least one Deadline Day arrival, bookmakers Sport Nation have revealed who they are tipping Chelsea to sign before the end of the transfer window.

Dries Mertens – 5/6
Chelsea are looking into a deal to sign Napoli striker Dries Mertens before the end of deadline day.
The Belgian forward has been prolific in Serie A over recent seasons and, as a result, Napoli are thought to have offered him fresh terms to keep him at the club.
With Mertens’ contract up at the end of the season, the Belgian will have a huge say in where his future lies, which is reflected in the bookmakers’ price of 5/6.
Moussa Dembele – 8/1

Moussa Dembele remains a long-term target for Chelsea, who have tracked him since his days at Fulham.
However, Lyon’s reluctance to part with the Frenchman has made a January transfer hard to complete.
Money talks, though, and if Chelsea were to offer a huge sum of money for Dembele he could still move to Stamford Bridge, as his 8/1 price reflects.
Jude Bellingham – 9/1
Away from Chelsea’s striker hunt, the Blues have been linked with Birmingham City teen sensation Jude Bellingham.
The 16-year-old is attracting interest from several of the Premier League’s biggest clubs after impressing in his debut Championship season.
