With the January transfer window set to open very shortly, it remains to be seen who Frank Lampard adds to his squad.

After the downturn in recent form, which culminated in the poor display and defeat at the hands of Southampton, at Stamford Bridge, on Boxing Day, Chelsea need to bring in reinforcements to bolster their young squad.

Today, lurking in the pages of The Daily Star is the inference that Chelsea are set to make raid on Paris Saint-Germain for not one, but two, of their squad.

Our source is suggesting that the intended targets are the 26-year-old German winger, Julian Draxler and the 30-year-old Senegalese midfielder Idrissa Gueye.

But are both viable targets?

Starting with Draxler, the player would bring some much-needed experience to the club and on his day, he is world-class, however, here at Vital Chelsea, we’re a little worried by just how few times he’s started for Paris Saint-Germain.

Continuing with Gueye, the player has Premier League experience with Everton and moved move to La Ligue back in the summer. At 30-years-of-age, you’d have to question longevity of the proposed deal.

With such a huge, reportedly, treasure chest at hand, my own view is that Chelsea could do better than target these two, but what are your views on the possible deals?

Please feel free to drop your viewpoint into the comment facility beneath this article.

    • It’s because Caballero can’t challenge and prove himself.kepa is so over confident of the 1st stopper.
      We need a seasoned keeper

  • The results from Chelsea is unsettling its numerous supporters to extent that they are no longer sure of being among the first 4. The club should be strategic in signing players.

    • We're chasing shadows. Zaha is it. He scores goals. Young and don't give away balls. We need a striker of Haaland quality. We need a strong centre back and a Good keeper. Our keeper is a basket. Very inexperience. says:

      We will miss top4 if we don’t buy striker midfielder and central half

  • We dont actually need gueye if Kante can be played in normal position. Yes, we need a striker, central defender, a left back and goal keeper. Keper is calamitous. Despite the fact that Abraham have got goals, he is still not experienced or strong enough to martial that attack from week to week.
    Bashuayi should be giving more time than he is getting now….

  • Draxler is ok but we need more of defense.Also,we need a good keeper just to challenge kepa.He has made some silly and avoidable mistakes because he has no challenge.If a good keeper is brought in and kepa saw the impact;he will adjust and sit upright.UP BLUES.

  • Why do we need wingers we have 2 but we don’t use them because the captain plays as a winger not as a full back also jorginio cannot play along side Kantor in a 2 midfield Kantor can play along side kovach also please play James regularly if not he will never learn also Tammy needs too be more mobile not quick enough in and around box lastly play some long balls not always short passing that is why teams are able to defend. Good luck have supported chelsea 60yrs

  • We need competition in all positions that is what makes players play their A game week after week.Abraham should come in atimes as a sub.Batman is sharp ,if given more time his confidence will improve.Zouma is 2 mechanical and will never be a first class defender.We need a very classy versatile defender and a creative midfielder like Isco or wide player like Zaha to creat chances and open up tight heart bleeds any time we lose.
