The Daily Express has suggested that AC Milan star Stephan El Shaarawy is a main transfer target for Jose Mourinho this month.
The versatile attacker scored 18 goals in all competitions for Milan last season and the report suggests that the Blues will be willing to part with a fee of £30 million for the player.
El Shaarawy is set to have talks with Milan over his future amid growing speculation that he will walk away from the San Siro this summer.
Bayern Munich manager Pep Guardiola is reportedly ready to make a £35 million bid for Chelsea defender David Luiz.
The Brazilian has been linked with a move away from Stamford Bridge this summer with Barcelona the most notable team apparently interested in him, as Jose Mourinho is thought to frown upon his style of play.
The links with the Spanish giants and French club PSG seem to have sparked Guardiola’s interest that the defender could be available.
The French defender is firmly on the radar of Chelsea, as he’s been tipped as one of the best defensive prospects in European football.
Chelsea will beat off plenty of other top sides who have been linked with him including Manchester United, who have already had an offer rejected as it fell some way short of St Etienne’s valuation of the player.
