Chelsea chasing Everton starlet Rodwell

Everton starlet Jack Rodwell is a January target for Chelsea.

Everton starlet Jack Rodwell is a January target for Chelsea.

The People says Carlo Ancelotti has told his spies to find him a new midfield 'sitter,' who is preferably English, and the Goodison under-21 ace is being closely monitored.

The Stamford Bridge outfit have sent their top men to watch Rodwell this season and think he fits the bill.

Rodwell was a stand-out for England's Under-21s in the summer and has established himself in David Moyes' side this season.

The fact that Chelsea's team is growing old together has meant a lot of work being done on the next generation of arrivals.

Roman Abramovich hopes the club's transfer ban will be suspended for January so they can make two or three new signings.
