Chelsea will continue business in the January transfer window despite their current form, which have seen them leading Premier League table with 31 points from 13 games.
According to report from The Express, the Blues have reignited their interest in signing Real Madrid attacking midfielder James Rodriguez in the winter transfer.
The 25 years old Colombian star has fallen down the pecking order with Zinedine Zidane’s starting eleven. The talented star has been forced to watch some of the season matches from the bench.
Chelsea creative midfielder Cesc Fabregas is facing a similar case at Stamford Bridge and rumours have it that the Spaniard could be shown the exit down to Stamford Bridge in January.
Italian tactician Antonio Conte is thought to be a big fan of Rodriguez, having made an attempt to loan the star to Stamford Bridge in the summer.
James known for his creative play, vision and exquisite passing skills will certainly be a better replacement for Cesc Fabregas, who seems to have lost his creative mojo. The 25-year old Colombian could resuscitate his career with the Blues.
Should Madrid be willing to part ways with the midfielder in January, the Blues will have to battle premier League rival Manchester United for his signature.
United boss Jose Mourinho is keen on reinforcing his midfield, with summer signing Henrikh Mkhitaryan failing to impress.
