The west London side scouted the duo in their recent encounter with Benfica and are players Mourinho is ready to make moves for with the Blues manager apparently unhappy with Andre Schurrle and Mohamed Salah with both players linked with potential January exits.

Bellarabi has been in fine form this term with the winger netting seven goals in 14 starts whilst Calhanoglu has impressed since his summer move to Leverkusen and the 20 year old Turkish international is rightly considered one of the hottest prospects in European football.

Scurrle would’ve hoped to play a more prominent role at Chelsea following his efforts during the summer World Cup finals but has found himself firmly behind Willian in Mourinho’s starting eleven whilst Egyptian wide-man Salah is very much a bit-part player having failed to secure a single Premier League start this term.
