All the latest Chelsea news including the transfer rumour linking Tottenham Hotspur with Mohamed Salah.

Tottenham Hotspur are linked with Chelsea attacker Mohamed Salah, according to the latest transfer news.

The Egyptian is a fringe player in Jose Mourinho's first team plans having started six games with five substitute appearances since transferring from FC Basel, with only one cameo appearance made in the Premier League to date.

Renowned for his pace, shooting, ability to dispossess an opponent and his anticipated upward career trajectory due to his ability, Salah could prove a handful for full backs in years to come, yet faces an arduous task in breaking into the regular starting XI at Stamford Bridge due to the competition for places in the final third.

The Express report that Tottenham Hotspur believe a starting bid of £13 million in the January transfer market could tempt Chelsea into releasing the player, as Lilywhites boss Mauricio Pochettino is "keen to add to his attacking options."

The club's injury situation, meanwhile, has been given an update.

Midfielder Ramires is currently sidelined due to injuring his hip abductor but assistant coach Steve Holland explained that it is only "a minor injury" and it will be reviewed in the coming days.

Prolific penalty-box predator Diego Costa has long been plagued by hamstring problems but the Brazil-born Spaniard may be getting a clean bill of health as even though he has "discomfort", he is beginning to "feel better."

He told IBTimes: "I'm working to get the best physical condition soon. The games we have now, almost every three days, will help me to get fit."
