10pm Chelsea transfer news LIVE: Batshuayi to stay, Willian and Kante to face United, Costa scores four then gets sent off – The Sun

FRANK LAMPARD is assessing his Chelsea squad as he prepares for a big test at Old Trafford on the opening weekend.

The Blues are unable to make any new additions due to their transfer ban, but they may still splash out on future signings…

Follow ALL of the latest Blues news, updates and gossip below…

  • WILL Ross Barkley be the match-winner for Chelsea against Reading tomorrow?

  • FORMER Chelsea youth captain Todd Kane has joined QPR on a three year deal.

    The 25-year-old right-back failed to make a single appearance for the Blues – with the player shipped off on eight separate loan spells.

    Speaking of the defender, Hoops boss Mark Warburton said: “Todd is a player who I’ve watched right throughout the academy system.

    “He joined Chelsea at a young age and I watched his performances for Hull last season, where he showed his qualities as an attack-minded and technically-gifted full-back.

    “He has a real desire to play the game with intensity, so we’re delighted to see him join us.”

  • EVERTON are looking at Tiemoue Bakayoko as a replacement for Idrissa Gueye.

    The Toffees have already landed Fabian Delph but see Bakayoko as an ideal man to strengthen their option in the centre of the pitch.

    RMC Sport claim that Everton could make a move for the ex-Monaco man.

    Gueye has agreed a five-year deal to move to PSG after missing out on his dream transfer in January.

  • N'GOLO KANTE is set to hand Frank Lampard a huge boost by being fit for Chelsea's Premier League game at Manchester United.

    Fears the midfielder would be absent with a knee problem emerged over the weekend, when he was sent home early from the Blues' tour of Asia.

    But Chelsea have confirmed that he could return to full training as early as this week.

    That would come too soon to face Reading in a friendly at Madejski Stadium on Sunday.

    But Kante still has over two weeks to be fit for the Blues kicking off their campaign.

  • NOT long to go before Frank Lampard's first Premier League game in charge of Chelsea.
