Ashley Young and Anderson first out in January, Falcao for Chelsea and Lassana Diarra for Arsenal or City...
SPURS BACK IN FOR MATA
So, Juan Mata.
Aside from the goal, the biggest noise at Stamford Bridge in the Basel game was when Juan Mata was brought on. Jose Mourinho's apparent reticence to play probably his best player is clearly as baffling to them as it is to the rest of us.
Whatever his reasons, the sight of Mata on the bench will inevitably encourage the stories about him leaving Chelsea, one of which appears in The Daily Express this morning.
The paper reports that Tottenham will 'make another attempt' to sign Mata in January, but will be rivalled by both Napoli and Juventus.
This is all via Portuguese paper Record, by the way, so make of it what you will.
LIVERPOOL STILL IN FOR HUGHES
The Daily Mirror reports that Brendan Rodgers still has eyes for a blonde to play in his midfield.
The paper claims Liverpool are still keen on Derby midfielder Will Hughes, who is 'seen as a potential long-term replacement for Steven Gerrard'.
The paper claims: 'The Anfield giants have been tracking Hughes for some time, but will not take the plunge until the time and price are right.
'Hughes was also checked out by a two-man delegation from Everton, but Liverpool are favourites to land him - possibly in the January window.'
RUDDY ON CHELSEA
As usual, a drop-off in quality for your gossip this morning.
Here's John Ruddy, commenting in The Daily Express, on a move to Chelsea that didn't happen:
"The club didn't get an offer they deemed acceptable.
"I was flattered by the interest and I thank Chelsea and (Jose) Mourinho for that - and the level of interest they showed as well.
"But it wasn't to be. It was all sorted fairly early doors before we started pre-season, so I was ready to get my head down and work hard for Norwich, and to try and maintain my performances that I had last year."
INTEREST IN INGS ABOUNDS
Quick line in The Daily Star for you now.
The paper reports that Danny Ings is a target for Aston Villa, Newcastle and Sunderland.
Possibly only Mr Ings will care about that, mind.
