Chelsea are willing to sell Demba Ba this month.

The London Evening Standard says a number of teams are interested in his signature, including former club West Ham United, who are in desperate need of a striker to help lift them out of relegation trouble.

However, if Ba leaves, Chelsea would be left with only Fernando Torres and Samuel Eto'o to choose from up front, although Jose Mourinho has been keen to add a top class forward to the squad anyway.
