Chelsea are considering to end Tammy Abraham loan at Aston Villa and bring him back to Stamford Bridge during this winter transfer window.

The England Under-21s international has 11 goals in 14 appearances since dropping down for a second stint in the second tier.

The Mirror reports that Chelsea can bring Abraham back to Stamford Bridge in January should they wish and integrate him into their first-team squad for the second part of the season.

However, a separate report carried by the Birmingham Mail suggests that Villa are confident the Blues will respect the season-long loan agreement.

Villa coach assistant John Terry maintains a strong working relationship with Chelsea, which the West Midlands outfit hope will help them in their quest to keep Abraham in place until next summer.

In the last few weeks, Chelsea midfielder Cesc Fabregas has been linked with a move in the January transfer window as Ac Milan have showed interest in signing the Spaniard.

Now, Fabregas himself confirms he can soon leave Stamford Bridge or, at least reach a deal with another club:

We have a good squad with a lot of valuable players. I’m at Stamford Bridge and I’m happy, but it’s clear that every player wants to play more”. Fabregas told Football Italia. “I haven’t talked to anyone, but it’s obvious that if I haven’t signed a renewal then I can do a deal with someone from January and will probably attract a lot of clubs. Will I stay until the end of the season? For now I can say yes.”

According to OK Diario Eden Hazard will move to Real Madrid next January: the Spanish outlet reports that Chelsea have accepted that they are likely to lose the Belgian star, even in the start of 2019.

Los Blancos failed to replace Cristiano Ronaldo during the summer transfer window after the Portuguese star moved to Juventus in July, and their shaky start to the season continued with a 3-0 defeat at Eibar on Saturday afternoon.

Hazard has been in fine form for Chelsea this term, managing eight goals and four assists in 15 appearances in all competitions, with seven of those strikes coming in the Premier League.

The Belgium international has admitted he’s got a lot of esteem of new Chelsea manager Maurizio Sarri but he will see his Blues contract expire at the end of next season and revealed during the summer that he dreams to move to Santiago Bernabéu.

After signing Tiemoué Bakayoko on loan in the last summer transfer window AC Milan are interested to loan another Chelsea player, Andreas Christensen.

The Denmark international has struggled for first-team football since Maurizio Sarri summer arrived at Stamford Bridge in July and is yet to make a single appearance in the Premier League this season.

Chelsea are reportedly determined to keep the 22-year-old, while Christensen himself has hinted that he doesn’t want to leave in January despite being unhappy with his current situation.

However, Gazzetta dello Sport claims that Milan are still interested in the Denmark international and will look to prise him away from Stamford Bridge when the transfer window reopens.

Milan are understood to be in the market for defensive reinforcements due to injury issues – all of their starting defenders are out for at least one month – and believe Christensen could be an ideal signing.

The World Champion has played down talk of a January exit, and made it clear he’s set to fight for his place.

“I feel like it is as if we are where we were several months ago when I was being asked the same questions before the World Cup,” claimed the French forward, who moved to Stamford Bridge from Arsenal last January.

“I don’t need to put myself under more pressure than that.

“Of course, I am a competitor and I would like more playing time.”

Chelsea's Ruben Loftus-Cheek reacts

Bundesliga outfit Schalke 04 are said to be preparing an offer to sign Chelsea’s Ruben Loftus-Cheek next January but will face competition from Crystal Palace.

The Mirror reports that both the Eagles and the German side will try their luck with bids after failing to sign the player over the summer.

It has been suggested that Loftus-Cheek will be on the move in January in order to get regular playing time.

Chelsea turned down offers from Palace for Loftus-Cheek last summer as they were keen re-sign him after the England international impressed on loan last season and Roy Hodgson has never hidden his intention to bring the player back to the South London club.

However, the arrival of Mateo Kovacic on loan from Real Madrid and the emergence of former Everton midfielder Ross Barkley under Maurizio Sarri has made game time hard to come by at Stamford Bridge.

Loftus-Cheek has been forced to settle for minutes in the Europa League and cup competitions, with Premier League chances coming few and far between.

For this reasons both the club and the player are keen for a loan move in the next winter transfer window.

AC Milan wanted to cancel Tiemoué Bakayoko‘s loan next January due to his poor performances in this start of the season but recently the Italian club changed his mind.

The 24-year-old improved in his playing but, furthermore, the Rossoneri suffered a lot long-term injuries in the past weeks and cannot reduce their squad anymore.

Giacomo Bonaventura underwent a knee-surgery yesterday and will come back next season, Argentine international Lucas Biglia will be out for 4 months and Calahnoglu is a doubt for the next games for an old foot issue.

All the starting defenders are out as well ( Caldara for 3 months, Musacchio for 2, Romagnoli for 1 and Calabria is a doubt for the next games).

Because of this difficult situation and Bakayoko’s improvements in Serie A the Italian side decided to keep him for the rest of the season.

Just ahead of Red Devils trip to Stamford Bridge manager José Mourinho admits he would love to reunite with Chelsea star Eden Hazard at Manchester United but he is sure the Blues board won’t allow the Belgian star to move to Old Trafford:

“I would love to have him in Manchester United but I don’t think Chelsea will sell him to Man United so it’s a not problem. Chelsea is led by intelligent and experienced people in football and they would never sell Eden to Man United.”

The Special One continued to praise the Belgian during his pre-match press conference, claiming that when he plays at top levels, Chelsea are usually league champions:

“Very good results, top of the league and of course lots of good players, but history says that when Eden Hazard is the best player of the Premier League, Chelsea is the champion.”

“It happened with me and Antonio [Conte], and this season, it is still the beginning of course, but if he is the best player of the Premier League until now, which I think he is until now, Chelsea is top of the league because he is the kind of player who can make a huge difference.”
