Wednesday's news about Chelsea focuses on the position that still needs some attention at the club, forward.
It seems as though the Blues' pursuit of Samuel Eto'o is over, according to Metro's Jamie Sanderson.
Sanderson's report declares that Anzhi coach Gadzhi Gadzhiev has stated that Eto'o has decided to stay in Russia and play for the club this season.
As if the silly season could not get more confusing, Eto'o's agent Claudio Vigorelli said that the Blues were one of three clubs in the chase for the 32-year-old Cameroon international, according to ESPN UK.
Adding to the incoming forward speculation, ESPN's Miguel Delaney reports that Chelsea have a "Plan B and C" if their chase of Wayne Rooney fails.
Delaney notes that if a deal can not be reached for either Eto'o or Rooney, a potential third target may be Galatasaray's Burak Yilmaz, although Delaney states that no contact has been made with the Turkish star.
There is also a bit of news surrounding a potentially outgoing forward at Stamford Bridge.
Charles Perrin of The Express reports that Demba Ba could be in line for a move to Serie A club Roma if Erik Lamela moves to Tottenham.
Roma has an opening at the position after Pablo Osvaldo turned in the Eternal City club for Southampton on Monday.
One has to believe that if Ba is let go, Chelsea will have to bring in another forward to replace him first.
