Captain John Terry expects Chelsea to make the most of the January transfer window.
The Blues have had a transfer ban suspended pending appeal so will be free to bring players in when the window opens again. And Terry expects manager Carlo Ancelotti and owner Roman Abramovich to discuss some moves.
"It's good news about the transfer ban being suspended but we lose four good players to the African Nations Cup in January anyway," he told The Sun.
"I'm sure the club and the manager are looking into that and having good talks with Roman.
"I wouldn't be surprised if we do go out and buy because we don't know what's going to happen in the summer - or the following summer."
