All the latest news and views from Stamford Bridge.
Jose Mourinho may be looking to fortify his defensive midfield zone by acquiring one of his former players, Internazionale combative Argentine; Esteban Cambiasso, whose contract at Internazionale is expiring in the summer.
Cambiasso, 33, would be 34 by the time he represents Chelsea for the first time in a competitive match but the veteran has a wealth of experience at the elite-level, has won five Scudetti for Inter, claimed the Champions League (with Mourinho) in the historic 2010 season and also achieved success at Real Madrid, also, heightening the likelihood he would be able to adapt to yet another league, in another country, with another club.
The speculation began in the player's homeland, but was repeated here. He is currently valued at £6.2m by transfermarkt.co.uk.
Aside from potential imports, the club have received a bid for one of their current players, meaning there may well be an export in the coming days, as confirmed on Sky Sports, as Kevin de Bruyne has been subject to a bid from Bundesliga side Wolfsburg.
De Bruyne's agent Patrick de Koster added on Kicker: 'We hope something might happen soon. Kevin really wants to go to the Bundesliga.'
Meanwhile, The Independent speculate that the following quotes sourced from Juan Mata's official blog are indicative of his desire to not hand in an official transfer request: 'My goal is to keep being happy and trying to make the people around me happy. At the end, that’s what life is about!'
