Chelsea eased their way into the FA Cup fourth round with a consummate 4-0 victory over Morecambe on Sunday afternoon.
The win featured crucial goals for Kai Havertz and Timo Werner, two new signings who have struggled to make the desired impact since their arrival, while it also eases the pressure on Frank Lampard somewhat.
Now almost halfway through the January transfer window, Chelsea have been quiet thus far. Their main business came in the summer, spending north of £200million and the focus is now on trimming the squad.
With that in mind, we have updates on two young players whose playing time has been reduced as a result of the new arrivals.
Here is a round-up of the latest Chelsea transfer rumours.

Bayern interest in Hudson-Odoi
Bayern Munich reportedly remain interested in Chelsea winger Callum Hudson-Odoi, who was the subject of a loan offer with a £70m option-to-buy clause in the summer from the German club.
Chelsea rejected the bid after previously fending off interest from Bayern, penning Hudson-Odoi to a new contract until 2024. However, per the Daily Mail, Bayern have not been deterred by their recent failures to sign the now 20-year-old.
The report claims that Bayern continue to monitor Hudson-Odoi’s situation at Stamford Bridge, especially with regards to his playing time, and have not given up hope of signing him in the future.
Hudson-Odoi has made 16 appearances in all competitions this season, but only eight have been from the start. And of those eight, only two have come in the Premier League. He has played the full 90 minutes on just four occasions, two coming in the Carabao Cup.
