Chelsea midfielder N'Golo Kante is on track to return from injury ahead of their Champions League clash with Borussia Dortmund.
The first leg of the Blues' European tie will take place in Germany on February 15, before the return leg three weeks later on March 7.
And Graham Potter's men are hoping Kante could be available for the away leg, although the return fixture is more realistic.
This is according to a report in L'Equipe, with Chelsea's midfield currently decimated by injuries.
Kante, 31, Denis Zakaria, Mateo Kovacic and Ruben Loftus-Cheek have all been plagued with fitness issues during the first half of the season.
