Chelsea are hopeful of having the club’s transfer ban overturned with the Court of Arbitration for Sport set to hear Chelsea’s appeal on November 20.

The Blues are preparing to make signings in January and one player that has been linked with Chelsea is Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell.

According to Darren Bent, there’s no need for Frank Lampard to make wholesale changes to the squad following Chelsea’s strong start to the season.

Bent believes the only signing Chelsea should make is Ben Chilwell as he would be an upgrade on Chelsea’s left-back options.

Bent said on talkSPORT: “I don’t know how much money they’re going to have if this ban is overturned, but if they can go and get Ben Chilwell I think that’s really the only position where you’d say ‘well, if we can strengthen somewhere, it will be there’.

“And if you’re going to get him, then yeah I’m all for that.

“But they don’t need to go and make wholesale signings.

“I think they could have a look at the squad, see where they might be a bit light, there’s injuries and stuff, but you don’t need to go and buy, other than the left-back with Ben Chilwell, any starters.”
