The January transfer is officially only hours over a month away. Chelsea continue to be frustrated by poor results, as two straight draws under new manager Rafael Benitez are sure to have Roman Abramovich scrambling once again.
However, the rumor mill continues to flourish around the possible transfers of some of the biggest stars to Stamford Bridge over the course of the next few months.
Only the Blues front office know the real story, but for now here are the latest rumors to keep your mind occupied with speculation.
Bayer Leverkusen star Andere Schurrle is one of the latest to be linked with a move to Stamford Bridge.
The talented Bundesliga star has impressed so far this season and remains a target for the Blues again in January according to the Mirror.
He had also been a rumored target for Robert Di Matteo before he was sacked.
Considering the last major money move from Liverpool to the Bridge has not worked out, it holds to reason why this could be a little bit of a campaign of fluff.
However, with Liverpool having just signed Suarez to a new contract over the summer this is likely nothing more than rumor.
One Liverpool youngster that is on the minds of every major club in the English Premier League at the moment is Raheem Sterling.
The Guardian claims that Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers is doing his best to make sure that the youngster signs a new five-year deal, but links to both Chelsea and Manchester City are making waves around the future of the player.
The defender was previously linked with the club earlier in the month, but since the arrival of Rafael Benitez the link has once again reemerged.
The players comment seems to sound like everything is already agreed for a move once the window opens (via Fox Sports Brazil):
It's always helpful having Brazilian team-mates playing alongside you, as they normally are settled down, so they can give you some advice and this is important, even regarding language.
Now that I'm moving to London I'll have to learn some English but they are used to this and they will surely help me a lot.
I used to follow the Spanish league and its big clubs like, but now as I'm moving to . I'm following the club more closely, especially after the Champions League title.
I watch Chelsea games whenever I can, sometimes I can't watch because I'm playing or concentrated with my team, but I don't miss a chance to see them playing on TV.
Radamel Falcao appears to be the most wanted Chelsea target of the coming January transfer window.
However, according to reports from Sky Sports, it appears that the player is happy to remain in Spain for the time, but one day he might like to experience the challenge of the English Premier League.
Atletico Madrid President Enrique Cerezo made sure to reiterate that his player remains happy and focused at his current club where his deal does not expire until 2016:
He tells me he is very happy here and that he wants to honour his contract but one day, we don't know when, he would like to try out another league.
I know that day will come, but it won't be anytime soon. I can say that he has told me personally that he loves being at this club.
He is the best No. 9 in the world at the moment. He is also a lovely, kind guy, and he never loses his temper.
Yet another young Brazilian player being linked to a move to Stamford Bridge is Russian Premier League club Metalist Kharkhiv's Taison.
The 24-year-old forward is subject to one of the English club's latest inquiries around Europe, as they look for their newest influx of players in January according to the Telegraph.
Taison is a product of the same Internacional system as young midfielder Oscar who joined the Blues over the summer.
