Under Roman Abramovich's command, Chelsea have employed a long-standing club policy that players upon reaching 30 can not be awarded contracts longer than one year.

"As I said before: in this period there is a transfer market, if something happens, you know".

Chelsea are operating with a variety of considerations.

Roma are reluctant to lose Dzeko, but they accept with the player turning 32 in March this transfer window offers them the best chance to cash-in on the Bosnian and Herzegovina worldwide.

Tammy Abraham has impressed in hard circumstances on loan at Swansea City, scoring four Premier League goals in the worst attacking team in the division.

His previous spell in the Premier League should mean he doesn't require a lot of time to adapt, as well as the fact that Roma and Chelsea play the same 3-4-2-1 shape.

UKIP leader says will not resign

Premier League legend Frank Lampard isn't convinced Chelsea should splash the cash this month though.

Championship side Sunderland are hoping to land Chelsea teenager Ethan Ampadu on loan, claims The Sun. Still, Palace will not let the Belgian go unless the Blues sign the player on a permanent basis, not as a loanee.

Chelsea are also in looking to sign Edin Dzeko from Roma this month but a deal to bring in the 31-year-old striker is thought to be more complicated.

Barnes will provide a similar strength in aerial duels and set-pieces despite not being as towering as Carroll and Crouch. Barkley is a low-priced gamble who showed flashes of enormous talent at Everton and is still only 24; it is a lot harder to build a credible case for signing Carroll or Crouch, even as temporary backups.

No fewer than six strikers have been linked with a move to Stamford Bridge in the past week, however, the best of the bunch and the most realistic appears to be the links with the former Manchester City striker, Dzeko. The Bosnia and Herzegovina worldwide has netted 12 goals for the Giallorossi this season, including against Chelsea at Stamford Bridge in a 3-3 draw in the Champions League in October.
