Chelsea are today having their case heard by the Court of Arbitration for Sport the appeal launched by the club on their imposed transfer ban – if the club win, they will be able to business in the January transfer window.
 
The case is taking place in Lausanne, Switzerland with Blues fans keeping their fingers crossed that the Chelsea transfer ban is cut and that transfers can finally be made by manager Frank Lampard, who is so far doing an impressive job utilising blend of youth and experience.
 
A report in Football.London has suggested that while a case of such magnitude usually can run for a number of months, in Chelsea’s case it is likely to be accelerated and a result expected in December, ahead of the transfer window opening.
 
The Chelsea transfer ban was handed to the club back in February, and since then plenty of money has been made with the sales of Eden Hazard and Alvaro Morata – so Frank Lampard will have the luxury in just his second season in management, of having one of the richest war-chests in the game.
 
Being able to sign players this January will be met with a likely mix of opinion by Blues fans, with some quite rightly cautious to disrupt the current momentum of the first team players, which has included many young players now pushing for international starts, such as Tammy Abraham and Mason Mount.
 
The wait has officially begun today, and again while no set timetable for a result has been announced, it’s expected to be within the next couple of weeks.
