Three Chelsea players could be making the short trip across West London to Craven Cottage this month.

Claudio Ranieri needs signings as he aims to guide Fulham away from the Premier League relegation zone and it is understood that the Cottagers are hoping for a few favours from their local rivals.

According to Love Sport Radio, out-of-favour Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahill is on the verge of joining Fulham after playing just 21 minutes of league football under Maurizio Sarri.

 

And the report adds that Fulham have two more Blues players in their sights – the seldom-seen midfielder Danny Drinkwater and winger Victor Moses.

In fact, it is understood that both Drinkwater and Moses have been shown around the Fulham training ground in an attempt to convince the duo to join.

Former Manchester United youngster Drinkwater is a man Ranieri knows well, having played a key role in Leicester City’s famous title triumph in 2016 before he joined Chelsea for £35 million a year later.

Moses, meanwhile, could replace Timothy Fosu-Mensah at right-back, with the Dutchman expected to see his loan spell from United brought to an end in the near future.
