Chelsea transfer news: Blues ace could be axed in bid to sign £15m Serie A star

A round up of key transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

Latest reports suggest Chelsea will include Demba Ba in a deal to sign Fredy Guarin of Inter Milan.

Earlier this month, Chelsea reportedly agreed a £15 million deal for the box-to-box midfielder with Jose Mourinho apparently keen on doing business with his former club.

Ba has struggled to nail down a regularly starting place in the first team at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea will not make a move for St Etienne star Kurt Zouma until next summer according to Sunday papers.

The Blues are one of the sides thought to have been tracking the progress of the teenage defender along with Manchester United.

United could now move to beat Chelsea to Zouma with a bid when the January transfer window opens.

Chelsea are being linked with a swoop for Serie A striker Mario Balotelli.

The former Manchester City man is currently plying his trade with AC Milan and the Metro has claimed that Jose Mourinho is interested in bidding for the player.

However, given Balotelli’s relationship with Mourinho when the pair were at Inter Milan, it would be a surprising January transfer.
