The Blues are keen on signing the leading Premier Leagues top scorer Jamie Vardy, and would be willing to offer Loic Remy to Leicester City in part exchange for the 29-year-old English striker.

The Foxes would surely kiss their title hopes goodbye by selling their main hitman though, and “have no intention” of letting Vardy leave before the transfer deadline.

Alexandre Pato passed the medical to become a new Chelsea player but now a new issue is blocking the closing of the deal with Corinthians for the loan of the striker.

In fact, according to reports, there are complications over the loan fee that are holding up the agreement between Chelsea and Pato’s parent club.

The two clubs, anyway, are confident to find a solution over the issue before Monday, when the winter transfer window will shut down.

Reports in the Sun have claimed that Chelsea have already signed a deal with Juventus boss Massimiliano Allegri to become their new boss at the end of the season.

The article also claims that Juve are aware of this, and are currently seeking a replacement.

The Blues have been linked with a host of managers in recent weeks, as they look for a permanent figure to lead the team after interim boss Guus Hiddink departs at the end of the season.

Stoke boss Mark Hughes, Tottenham Hotspur manager Mauricio Pochettino and Chile boss Jorge Sampaoli have all been linked with the position, among others.

However, it is believed Sampaoli could be replacing Allegri in Turin after Chelsea contacted 48-year old representatives, with talks said to be successful.

It is believed that Allegri, who managed AC Milan before his move to Juve, could be on his way to London to finalise a deal – however, this is unconfirmed.

Manchester United are lining up a bold move to sign Chelsea teen sensation Domingos Quina, according to the Daily Express.

Quina has been catching the eyes of several clubs recently, despite being just 16-years old. He joined from Portuguese side Benfica in 2013.

United, who have come under fire in recent weeks for failing to nurture academy players into their first team, view Quina as the first step in their new youth system after CEO Ed Woodward recently announced an overhaul at the club’s Melwood academy.

It is unclear if Chelsea are willing to release the Portugal Under-17 international, or indeed how much United would pay should a deal be sanctioned.

Ex-Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy has said that Chelsea defender Gary Cahill could be a perfect fit for the club.

This comes after growing speculation that Cahill could leave Stamford Bridge, having lost his place in Guus Hiddink’s starting XI to Kurt Zouma.

The 30-year old has made more than 170 appearances for the Blues since moving from Bolton in 2012, but with Euro 2016 approaching, Cahill believes that he needs first team football to ensure a place in Roy Hodgson’s England squad.

Speaking to talkSPORT, Murphy, who is now a TV pundit, has said that Cahill would be a perfect fit in Jurgen Klopp’s Liverpool side.

“Gary Cahill is competing with John Stones and Chris Smalling for a place in the England line-up, for me,” Murphy said.

“And there’s one thing for sure, that if he stays on the bench for the rest of the season at Chelsea he’s not going to oust either of them from the team.

“The question mark is would Chelsea let him go? And if they would, who needs him and who could pay the money for him? He only recently signed a new Chelsea contract and he’s on a good wage.

“Would he suit Liverpool? Would he be a player that gets into the Liverpool team and make a difference? Yes, he would.

“He’s a terrific lad, a good pro, a good trainer and not a moaner or a whinger.

“I completely understand why he might want to move, if that is true. At his age it could be his last big championships in an England shirt, and I like that attitude that he’s desperate to play for his country.”

Chelsea have been keeping an eye on the progress of Real Madrid’s full back Dani Carvajal for a potential January transfer.

It seems that the Merengues boss Zinedine Zidane is favouring Danilo for the remainder of the season leaving 24-year-old Carvajal sitting on the bench.

However, if they cannot come to an agreement in the next four days, Chelsea are willing to wait until the summer to sign the right back from Spain.

Chelsea’s young striker, Patrick Bamford has recently been linked with a variety of Premier League clubs looking for a loan move for the 22 year-old striker, but how good is he?

The Blues forward signed from Nottingham Forrest in January 2012, having only made two substitute appearances. But the Chelsea scouts saw enough in him at youth level to take a gamble on the then 18 year-old.

Bamford then spent the rest of the 2011/12 season in the Chelsea youth team and was ready for a loan switch to MK Dons when the opportunity arose the following season. Bamford spent just over a year there scoring 18 goals in 37 League One appearances.

The youngster impressed and his loan spell was ended in January 2014 for him to take the step up and move to Championship side Derby County for the remainder of the season in which he scored 8 goals in 14 starts. This prompted a battle for Bamford’s services within the Championship the following season with then boss Jose Mourinho electing to send him on loan to one of his old coaches Aitor Karanka at Middlesborough. Bamford excelled on loan at The Riverside scoring 17 goals in just 32 starts taking Boro to Wembly and the Play-off final, which they would eventually lose to Norwich. Bamford claimed the Championship player of the year that season and was touted for great things on his return to Chelsea.

Mourinho still didn’t quite believe Bamford could make an impact at Chelsea just yet and sent the forward out on loan, to his biggest test yet, Premier League side Crystal Palace. In which the test was a bit too much. The youngster cut short his loan spell earlier this month due to a lack of playing time, in which he only made 6 substitute appearances for The Eagles.

Chelsea will hope that Bamford is taken on by another Premier League club in order for him to show his potential in the Premier League. It’s all there for Bamford, he needs to take his chance in the Premier League and prove to the Chelsea hierarchy that he can make it in the first-team.
