A round up of transfer stories this morning about Chelsea.

Atletico Madrid are reportedly refusing to budge on their valuation of Filipe Luis.

Chelsea have been strongly linked with a move for the Brazilian left-back but may have no option other than to pay his £19 million buy-out clause.

The Daily Mail claims the fee is a sticking point in the deal, with the 28-year-old seemingly keen to join Diego Costa at Stamford Bridge.

The Daily Express claims Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba could reject a move to Chelsea.

The Blues are one of the only sides with the resources to be able to fund a move for the dynamic Frenchman.

He’s rated at around the £60 million mark, with Chelsea one of the clubs believed to be considering a potential bid.

Jose Mourinho reportedly doesn’t think that centre-back Kurt Zouma is ready for his first team.

The French defender joined the Blues from Saint-Etienne in a £12 million deal last summer.

Mourinho believes a possible season long loan away from the club will allow Zouma to enhance his first team experience.
