Chelsea will be able to sign players in January after the transfer ban imposed on the club was lifted by the Court of Arbitration for Sport.

Ahead of the January transfer window, 90min claims Chelsea are contemplating a move for Bordeaux forward Josh Maja to offer competition to Tammy Abraham.

Frenchman Olivier Giroud is set to leave Chelsea in January and Maja could be his replacement.

Maja swapped Sunderland for Bordeaux in January 2019 and has managed seven goals in 23 appearances, only starting eight games.

According to 90min, Chelsea scouts have been seriously impressed with the 20-year-old’s performances.

Maja’s best performance in a Bordeaux shirt came in a recent 6-0 win over Nimes Olympique, in which Maja managed three goals and an assist in just his third start of the season.
