Chelsea maintained their hopes of securing a top-four finish in the Premier League this season after recording a hard-fought 2-2 draw with AFC Bournemouth at the Vitality Stadium on Saturday.
Two goals from Marcos Alonso either side of a Bournemouth double was enough to secure a point for Frank Lampard’s side, who remain fourth in the league table, three points ahead of Manchester United, who missed the chance to cut the gap to one point with a 1-1 draw at Everton on Sunday.
But the Blues will have to put their top-four aspirations to one side on Tuesday evening as they switch their attentions to the FA Cup, with Liverpool visiting Stamford Bridge in a highly anticipated fifth-round clash.
With their Champions League hopes hanging by a very, very fine thread and the Premier League title long gone, the FA Cup is the Blues’ only hope of landing a piece of silverware this season.
However, Chelsea will no doubt be looking to enjoy a far more successful campaign next summer, meaning Lampard will be hoping to have a busy summer on the transfer front.
With that in mind, here is a round-up of the day’s very latest Chelsea transfer news.
