    COULD Chelsea be set to lose their sparkling youngsters?

    Tammy Abraham and Reece James are yet to agree new deals at the club, despite their impressive seasons so far.

    Boss Frank Lampard is keen to give his academy stars new contracts which has already seen Callum Hudson-Odoi and Mason Mount put pen-to-paper.

    Midfielder Ruben Loftus-Cheek and 18-year-old Billy Gilmour have also penned new deals to extend their stay at Stamford Bridge.

    Abraham, 22, has enjoyed a terrific start to the season in his step up to Premier League football having scored 11 goals in 16 league appearances.

    James, 20, has also benefitted from Lampard's management and made his first team debut for the Blues in September in a Carabao Cup win over Grimsby.

    He then became Chelsea's youngest ever Champions League scorer when he bagged the fourth in their 4-4 draw with Ajax in November.

    The Telegraph write how both players have contracts until the summer of 2022 but the club are no closer to tying their futures down.

    DANNY DRINKWATER could be rescued from a torrid spell at Burnley by Turkish club Besiktas.

    The Istanbul giants are prepared to offer the Chelsea flop an 18-month loan switch despite only making two appearances this season.

    A year after winning the Premier League with Leicester, Drinkwater moved to Stamford Bridge for £35million but was largely unused in his first season.

    Somehow, matters declined even further with an entire campaign in the wilderness under Maurizio Sarri – playing 30 minutes in the Community Shield and earning a place on the bench just twice.

    Now, only six months into a loan with Burnley, Fanatik claim Besiktas want the 29-year-old.

    The Turkish club have been linked with a large scale raid on the Premier League in January with Michy Batshuayi of Chelsea and Aston Villa's Jonathan Kodija also subject of speculation.

    Having been dumped out of the Europa League group stage with just a single victory, Abdullah Avci's side have won seven of their last nine in the Super Lig to reignite their season.

    A move could also restart Drinkwater's struggling career with Sean Dyche only playing him versus Manchester City and Sunderland this year.

    CHELSEA should offer Olivier Giroud plus cash for Wilfried Zaha, claims John Solako.

    He told Love Sport Radio: “They could do a great little swap.

    “Palace have got their eyes on Giroud, and that would be fantastic – Giroud plus money.

    “If Palace get the right offer, they could be tempted.

    “Wilfried definitely has the ability for Chelsea, and no Palace fan can begrudge him if he wants that move.”
