A round up of news stories this morning related to Chelsea.
The Serie A side are reported to have sent scouts to watch him play in the international between Brazil and France recently.
They’re likely to have been impressed by what they saw as the Brazilian’s ran out 3-1 winners by the end of the game.
The Metro has reported that Chelsea are making last gasp attempts to sign German midfielder Sami Khedira.
The holding player is set to leave Real Madrid at the end of the season, with the Blues thought to be one of the clubs interested in signing him.
He is reported to want a contract worth £100,000 per week, which the paper claims the Blues are willing to pay.
The BBC has reported that Chelsea are willing to offer a fee in the region of £75 million to sign Gareth Bale from Real Madrid.
Bale is thought to be disillusioned with life in Spain after criticism from the Madrid press and the club’s fans.
However, Manchester United are widely known to have a keen interest in signing him.
