Transfers: Competition hotting up to sign Chelsea striker, director confirms interest

"We need to wait until January 31", he is quoted as saying by the Daily Mail. However, Chelsea may not be keen to re-sign a player who has scored just four goals across all competitions this season and are heavily linked with AC Milan loanee Gonzalo Higuain and Bournemouth's top-scorer, Callum Wilson.
