Chelsea are keen to stave off potential interest in defender Andreas Christensen, according to the London Evening Standard, which writes that they will open talks about a contract extension early in the new year.
Chelsea can progress to the two-legged semi-finals of the Carabao Cup if they beat Bournemouth.
Wales international Ethan Ampadu, 17, could start and fellow teenagers Callum Hudson-Odoi and Dujon Sterling are also in contention.
Things looked even worse for Batshuayi at Huddersfield, where Morata was left out of the 18, and Eden Hazard was picked as the centre-forward. "I put Christensen in because he deserves to be in, and this guy has fantastic prospects for the present and the future". The story is their back page splash.
If the new owners are not installed by Janaury then Benitez may be restricted to solely loan moves. They have nothing to lose from this and often teams are most dangerous when that is the case.
In The Sun, Andrew Dillon also writes that Arsenal will make a move, although this time he says that the offer will be worth £25m.
Christensen, who spent last season on-loan at Borussia Monchengladbach, has become a permanent fixture under the former Italy manager this season, helping his side secure nine clean sheets in 21 appearances.
At the moment, he is out with a knee concern.
The Blues were unable to land the Brazilian full-back over the summer, allowing the Red Devils to join the chase, but he is looking for a January switch to Stamford Bridge. The 30-year-old former Chelseamidfielder says he is happy playing in the Chinese Super League for Tianjin Teda. With Bournemouth arriving low on confidence, Chelsea's fringe players will be confident about making a statement to their Italian boss.
Luiz appears to have fallen down the pecking order at Chelsea, with young Danish defender Andreas Christensen having taken his place in the Blues side in recent weeks.
