Fulham will make a move for Chelsea defender Gary Cahill in January, according to the Metro.

The former England international has lost his place in the Blues’ starting XI since Maurizio Sarri took over in the summer.

Now, after just making one Premier League appearance this term, the Italian boss is expected to allow the 32-year-old move on.

And with his contract expiring at the end of the season, the West London outfit would receive a fee if they were to sell in the winter window.

This has reportedly caught the attention of Fulham chief Claudio Ranieri, who is keen to add some new blood to his backline with his side having conceded 40 goals in 16 matches.

Ranieri wants defensive recruitments to help shore up Fulham’s poor defensive record.

With Stamford Bridge just 1.5 miles from Craven Cottage it would be a short switch for the former Bolton star.

However, with the Cottagers bottom of the table, it remains to be seen if the central defender would opt for a relegation scrap.

Cahill has played 289 times and won six major honours in his time at Chelsea since joining the club in January 2012.
