Chelsea manager Avram Grant has played down renewed speculation linking the Blues with moves for Bolton Wanderers' Nicolas Anelka and Tottenham Hotspur's Dimitar Berbatov. The Blues are being strongly tipped to make a move for a new striker this month, with star frontman Didier Drogba currently out injured. However, Grant says that no deals are imminent, although he did rule out any players being allowed to leave Stamford Bridge. He told the club's official website: "At the moment there is a lot of speculation, I understand it, we have a lot of injuries and players are going to the African Nations Cup, but there is no news for the moment about any players coming to Chelsea. "There are so many good players we are following. I don't want to talk about Anelka or Berbatov, or any other players. There is no news at the moment, that is what is important. "Every week someone is writing about players coming or leaving us. I am happy with the squad. "All the players who are now in the squad will stay in the squad until the end of the season."
