Chelsea will launch an £80million bid for Crystal Palace winger, Wilfried Zaha, in January, the UK Sun reports.
The Blues were unable to add new players this summer, following a two-window transfer ban imposed by FIFA.
However, the Stamford Bridge club is confident, they can overturn the punishment they received from FIFA.
Then, they will try to take Zaha from Selhurst Park, in the winter window.
The 26-year-old was chased by Arsenal earlier this summer, but the Gunners failed to tempt Palace with a £40m bid and went to to sign Nicolas Pepe.
Everton were also unable to tempt the Eagles into selling their prize asset, who handed in a transfer request on Wednesday and did not train on Thursday ahead of Saturday’s first game of the season.
The Toffees have now signed Alex Iwobi from Arsenal.
