Chelsea are lining up summer move for forwards Callum Wilson and Timo Werner, according to The Sun.
The newspaper say Chelsea are increasingly confident that an appeal to the Court of Arbitration for Sport will lead to the club’s transfer ban being lifted in January.
That would mean boss Frank Lampard would not have to wait until next summer to sign new players.
And The Sun say Bournemouth’s England international Wilson and RB Leipzig’s Werner have been lined up for moves to Stamford Bridge.
Chelsea are also said to be looking for a replacement for Willian, whose Chelsea expires at the end of the season, and are ready to let Olivier Giroud leave in January.
Meanwhile, Chelsea have been urged to re-sign Nathan Ake from Bournemouth by Blues scout Piet de Visser.
Defender Ake, sold by Chelsea to Bournemouth two years ago, has been linked with a possible return during the last two transfer windows.
There is reportedly a buy-clause in the deal that saw Ake join the Cherries which would enable Chelsea to re-sign him for £40m.
“How often does he not score with head? He has timing and insight. I hope they buy him back.
“That boy is perfect for them and he has played with Lampard.”
