Blues trio in Cottagers loan link
Chelsea trio Danny Drinkwater, Victor Moses and Gary Cahill are all being linked with possible loan moves to London rivals Fulham.
Cottagers' boss Claudio Ranieri has made no secret of his desire to strengthen his struggling squad in the January transfer window as they currently sit in 19th position and are four points adrift of Premier League safety.
Ranieri confirmed after the side's shock 2-1 FA Cup third-round home defeat to League Two side Oldham on Sunday that he would be looking to sign new players as his fringe men failed to take their opportunity to shine.
And it looks like three players could be making the short move from Stamford Bridge to Craven Cottage.
Veteran England international central defender Cahill, who has only played 21 minutes of football under Blues boss Maurizio Sarri this season, is believed to be on the verge of joining on loan until the end of the season.
In addition to Cahill, reports claim fringe midfielder Drinkwater and out-of-favour wing man Moses could be joining him before the end of the month.
Neither appear to be in the plans of Sarri and could do a job to help Fulham out of their current predicament.
Some reports claim the pair have already been shown around the Cottagers' training ground in a bid to entice them into a loan move.
