After spending more than £200million in the summer transfer window, Chelsea have started the season in an extremely encouraging fashion.
They sit just two points off the top of the Premier League, have not lost in their last eight league games, and are starting to hit their stride just as the busy Christmas period looms.
The progress made by Frank Lampard and his team only encourages further spending and there are new updates on two potential targets that the Blues could turn to this January or next summer.
Signings also beget sales, and we have an update on a possible departure with regular playing time an issue.
Here is a round-up of all the latest Chelsea transfer rumours.

Chelsea monitoring White’s progress
Chelsea are reportedly among a number of clubs monitoring the progress of Ben White at Brighton and Hove Albion.
Per Sky Sports, White, who has started all 10 Premier League games for Brighton this season and has greatly impressed, has attracted interest from Chelsea, Manchester United, and Spurs, all of whom view him as a long-term anchor of their respective defences.
Chelsea signed Thiago Silva in the summer but could be on the lookout for a more sustained solution to last season’s defensive vulnerability.
White had previously been linked with Liverpool, though the report states that the Reds have “no interest” in him, despite their wretched injury issues at the position.
The 23-year-old rose to prominence by earning promotion with Leeds United last season. Leeds had a £25million bid rejected in the summer and he then signed a new long-term contract with Brighton.
