A select round-up of the latest news relating to Chelsea…
Chelsea are reportedly in talks with Roma regarding a possible deal to bring Mehdi Benatia to Stamford Bridge.
The Express has picked up on reports from Italy which claim that talks continue, despite the lack of a concrete bid at this stage.
Benatia - rated at around £30million - has also been strongly linked with Manchester United. But while Louis van Gaal's side is in desperate need of at least one new quality centre-back, that is not a problem that appears to blight Chelsea.
The report claims Monaco, Real Madrid and Paris Saint-Germain are all interested in the experienced goalkeeper, whose starting spot is in considerable doubt following the return of the Belgian international.
