The January transfer window has been open for two weeks and Chelsea are yet to make a meaningful move.
Only Lucas Piazon has been recalled from his loan and subsequently completed a free transfer to Braga.
The focus was always going to be on outgoings, and we have an update on a key potential departure here, while the squad would mostly stay the same after north of £200 million investment in the summer.
Meanwhile, on the pitch, Frank Lampard has come under pressure for the team’s recent results, including four defeats in their last six league games.
Here is a round-up of the latest Chelsea transfer rumours.

Paulo Dybala decision made
Chelsea will not pursue Juventus’ Paulo Dybala, despite the attacker entering the final 18 months of his contract and failing to agree to an extension as of now.
That is according to transfer expert Fabrizio Romano, who reports his belief that while he expects Dybala to depart in the summer if a new contract is not signed, Chelsea are not interested in a deal.
“Someone is asking me about Dybala because he is not extending at the moment his contract with Juventus, so there is nothing decided, but if he doesn’t extend his contract with Juventus before the summer, I think he will leave Juventus,” Romano said on his Here We Go podcast.
“I want to say that Chelsea have not made any contact with Dybala or his agent. They want to defend players like Havertz or Hakim Ziyech. They are happy with them.
“Obviously, they need time to be at their best level, in particular Havertz needs time, he’s so young, but they spend like €100m on Havertz, so they don’t want to say after one year we’ll go with Dybala and Havertz will sit on the bench, so at the moment there is nothing between Chelsea and Dybala.”
