Barcelona identify three Chelsea targets for January loan raid

Barcelona have plans to raid Chelsea in January for a new loan signing.

Sport says Barca have already drafted up a list of alternatives should they fail to land Manchester City's England international Raheem Sterling.

Barca could turn to Hakim Ziyech, Callum Hudson-Odoi or Christian Pulisic to bolster their attacking ranks.

Ziyech or Pulisic seem more realistic, with Blues boss Thomas Tuchel desperate to hold onto academy product Hudson-Odoi.

The Chelsea trio have played just 1,547 minutes between them this season across all competitions.

Hudson-Odoi takes up 800 of those minutes.

And Pulisic has played just 180, missing the majority of the season so far through injury.
