Demba Ba faces being squeezed out at Chelsea.

The Daily Star Sunday says Ba's old club West Ham United, who are looking to replace Carlton Cole and want a partner for Andy Carroll, are monitoring his position.

The Senegal striker, 28, who signed for the club in January from Newcastle for £7m while interim boss Rafael Benitez was in charge, says he wants to fight for his place and win trophies at Stamford Bridge.
