TOP STORY: Chelsea eye January moves for strike duo
Chelsea are so confident of having their transfer ban lifted in time for the January window that they are already lining up moves for a new striker to arrive midseason, according to The Sun.
England international Wilson, 27, has scored five goals in nine Premier League appearances so far this season, while 23-year-old Werner has netted eight time for Leipzig and once for Germany already this term.

08.00 BST: LA Galaxy forward Zlatan Ibrahimovic said that he has not decided on his future following his team’s 5-3 loss to LAFC in the Western Conference semifinals on Thursday (stream the replay of the match on ESPN+ in the U.S.).

When asked where he’ll be playing, Ibrahimovic said it’s “too early to speak” on whether he’ll return for another season with the Galaxy.
“I have another two months [on my contract],” Ibrahimovic said after the match. “We’ll see what happens…[If I stay], then MLS is good, because the whole world will watch it. If I don’t stay, nobody will remember what MLS is.”
