A round up of key transfer stories about Chelsea this morning.
The Colombian has been linked with the Blues for a long time, regardless of his move to the Ligue One side last summer.
The 27-year-old is thought to want out at Monaco, with another interested party, Real Madrid, unable to finance a move for the forward.
In other news, some sources are claiming that a potential move for Inter Milan’s Fredy Guarin is now in doubt.
Reports earlier this week suggested that a deal had been agreed for the versatile box-to-box 27-year-old.
However, Sky Sport Italia has reported that no agreements have been reached between any Chelsea and Inter Milan parties in relation to a deal.
In a fresher link, the Express has reported that Chelsea will try and beat Barcelona to the signing of Mateo Musacchio.
The 23-year-old Villarreal defender has been in good form for the La Liga side this season, which has prompted apparent interest from the Spanish champions.
Musacchio has secured two senior caps for the Argentinian national team.
