Some of the recent transfer speculation involving Chelsea....

Atal made 29 appearances for his French League side last season, but the Blues will have to get their ban lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sport before making such move.

And The Sun have picked up on a story by Italian outlet claiming that Algeria full-back Atal is being lined up.

The 23-year-old is apparently rated at £35m.

And according to Soccerlink, Chelsea could also launch a move for Valencia left-back Jose Gaya whenever their ban expires.

Talksport have picked up on a story by Soccer Link, which claimed the Spain worldwide could be on his way to Stamford Bridge. earlier reported that Joel Matip is understood to be ready to sign a contract extension with Liverpool after the clause in his present deal was triggered.

Juve's former Blues boss Maurizio Sarri is said to want Emerson, who has ousted Marcos Alonso as Chelsea's first-choice left-back.

But unlike Emerson, the contact talks for the England worldwide is nearly in the final stages and as per reports, he is on the verge of agreeing to a new £180,000-a-week five-year contract.

Chelsea have already served half of the sentence imposed by Federation Internationale de Football Association over breaches of transfer rules relating to global minors and were unable to register new players over the summer. However, there is still hope at Stamford Bridge that an ongoing appeal process might see it cut by half to just one window.

As things stand, the club still won't be able to add to their squad until next summer as the initial ban was for two transfer windows.

The Mirror say leading agents have been informed that Chelsea expect to do business at the turn of the year.

Premier League giants Chelsea are now under a transfer ban, meaning they can't sign new players until further notice.
