Andre Villas-Boas does not see the need, at this present time, to reinforce his squad when the transfer window opens next month.

The Blues have been linked with scores of players since the summer deadline, with the likes of Edinson Cavani and Gary Cahill said to be on Villas-Boas' radar.

Villas-Boas will also have to contend with the expected departures of Nicolas Anelka and Alex in January after both handed in transfer requests.

However, Villas-Boas is happy with his lot at the moment, especially in the attacking and defensive departments.

"Fernando (Torres) is there for that position, (Daniel) Sturridge and (Romelu) Lukaku. I think that's enough options," said the Chelsea boss. "We don't have a date yet for Didier's departure."

He added: "We have plenty of central defenders on loan. We have a bring-back option on (Hamburg defender Slobodan) Rajkovic.

"We don't know if Alex will go, or if the offers will be acceptable. We have kids coming through, as well."
