Here are your Chelsea morning headlines for Wednesday, 4 November.

No Chelsea interest in Dybala

Chelsea will not be pursuing a move for Juventus forward Paulo Dybala in January, according to reports.

The Express cite a report from Italian outlet Calciomercato which claims that Roman Abramovich has no interest in signing Dybala.

That’s because Chelsea already have numerous options in attack following a significant summer outlay.

Hakim Ziyech, Timo Werner and Kai Havertz all arrived at Stamford Bridge ahead of this season, so Chelsea are well stocked at the top of the pitch.

“Hence why a lot of managers now, particularly managers in Europe, are calling for more subs in the Premier League because I know these demands can take players to places where they are in real injury risk.

“So there are factors around it, but I don’t want to dwell too much on that, we have to deal with what’s in front of us and we do have a pretty fit squad at the moment.”
