Transfer silly season is here once again and we have an absolute cracker for you.

Chelsea are reportedly ready to make a bid for Senegal striker Oumar Niasse this month.

The 25 year old currently plays for Lokomotiv Moscow and has scored 7 goals in 11 games in the Russian Premier League this season.

Niasse would cost around £15 million and the idea is that he would be a backup to Diego Costa while Loic Remy looks set to head out on loan.

Niasse started his career at Union Sportive Ouakam in Senegal before moving to SK Brann (Norway) on loan. He then made a permanent move to the crazily named Akhisar Belediyespor in Turkey where he scored 12 goals in a successful campaign.

His impressive form earned him a €5.5 million transfer to Lokomotiv Moscow where he once again has impressed.

Will Stamford Bridge be his new home come January 31st? We will find out soon enough.
