Close! Chelsea close to completing fourth January deal

      Chelsea have already delved into the January market by signing Ross Barkley in a £15m ($20.3m) deal from Everton and sending striker Ike Ugbo on loan to MK Dons just a day after recalling him from Barnsley. Diego Costa's protracted £58m return to Atletico Madrid was technically completed at the beginning of the month.

Further incomings and outgoings are expected amid surprising links to West Ham United striker Andy Carroll, though a move for Juventus left-back Alex Sandro is said to have stalled due to the asking price.

Thomas Lemar, Thorgan Hazard, Arturo Vidal and Riyad Mahrez are among the scores of other players linked, while uncertainty continues to surround the respective futures of David Luiz, Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Kenedy.

Goal report that Vincenzo Montella's Sevilla are keen on a six-month loan deal for Batshuayi, whom it is said Chelsea will not allow to leave until they find a replacement to back-up first-choice forward Alvaro Morata.

The former Marseille frontman will be eager to cement his place in Belgium's World Cup squad having made only 11 top-flight appearances so far this term - nine as a substitute.
