So far, Christian Eriksen has got his contract running with the North London side until 2020 but manager Mauricio Pochettino is not ready to force a decision on the player but will rather let him make the decision best for him.

Meanwhile, the Blues are already preparing to part ways with Belgium international Eden Hazard who is on his way to Real Madrid and Christian Eriksen could just be the perfect replacement for him.

Reports claim that the West London side will be ready to break the bank to land Christian Eriksen so as to add more depth to the already existing and robust midfield.

Wilfried Zaha

Europa League winners Chelsea are reportedly keen to sign Crystal Palace winger Wilfried Zaha during the January transfer market which opens again in the next few weeks.

According to The Independent, Chelsea want to sign the in-form Zaha if their transfer ban is overturned at the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS).

Chelsea are in the midst of a two-window transfer ban imposed on them by world football’s governing body FIFA due to their culpability in the signing of underage players.

The Blues had earlier made an appeal to FIFA over the transfer ban and it was thrown out thereby prompting them to take the matter to CAS.

Chelsea were unable to sign players in the summer as they served the first part of the punishment.

They will serve the second part of the punishment in the January transfer window if the ban is not overturned.

Wilfried Zaha was a transfer target for both Everton and Arsenal in the summer but the two clubs were unable to produce the £80m transfer fee ended to sign him.

Recent reports claimed that Crystal Palace have slammed a £70m asking price on him ahead of January transfer window.

Zaha has scored two goals in the last three games for Crystal Palace.

Wilfried Zaha

Europa League winners Chelsea are free to sign players in the January transfer window after their transfer ban was lifted earlier today.

Chelsea were given a two-window transfer ban by FIFA earlier this year for their involvement with underage players and that prompted them to take the case to the Court of Arbitration for Sports (CAS) after their appeal to FIFA was turned down.

The Blues have already served a transfer window ban during this summer’s transfer window.

The CAS hearing took place earlier today and the FIFA ruling was partially upheld but the transfer ban was reduced from two transfer windows to one transfer window which had already been served by Chelsea in the summer.

With new development, Chelsea can now sign players as from the winter transfer window in the New Year.

Chelsea have been seriously linked with a move to Wilfried Zaha even before the ruling from CAS.

The latest development means that the Blues have the opportunity to sign Zaha from fellow Premier League side Crystal Palace.

According to the Independent, Chelsea will have to pay as much as £70m for Zaha if they want to sign the Ivorian international player who has scored two goals in the last three league games for Crystal Palace.
