Report via the Express claims Chelsea could complete their first January transfer today with Fenerbahce’s club president already in London to finalise terms for Cesc Fabregas

The 31-year-old has continually been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge, even though Maurizio Sarri would like him to stay.

According to the report Fabregas is already in talks with Chelsea to leave the West London club as a free agent this coming summer.

The Spaniard has admitted recently that he is keen to stay at Chelsea but the Blues have not made him an offer.

Fabregas’ contract expires at the end of the season, meaning Chelsea may be tempted to cash in on a sale this month, rather than lose him for nothing in July.

And Turkish journalist Sercan Hamzaoglu claims Fenerbahce’s Ali Koc is in London to conclude a deal with an unnamed Premier League club.

“Fenerbahce President Ali KOC, currently in London. Information I received; There’s a serious transfer call from London,” he wrote.

“Fenerbahce insists; How are the negotiations progressing, is it going to be inconclusive, or will we see this later in the coming days?”

He added: “Fenerbahce is a busy effort to monitor the fans. The real hard work is in London. The result is soon to be clear.”

The 31-year-old has drawn interest from Monanco and AC Milan in the past few weeks according to Football Espana.

Yet Hamzaoglu hit back at the publication, insisting he hasn’t revealed who Koc is talking to.

“I have never done a story in the form of Ali Koc-Fabregas,” he wrote to Football Espana’s sister publication, Football Italia.

Meanwhile, Chelsea manager, Maurizio Sarri has warned the club that they will find it difficult to replace Fabregas, should he eventually leave the club.

Sarri said: “I want him to stay, I don’t know the final decision of Cesc and the club of course.
