Chelsea are reportedly interested in signing Napoli defensive midfielder Amadou Diawara.
There are various news outlets who claim Chelsea have made contact with Napoli to negotiate a transfer and are prepared to submit an offer in the region of £40million. Yes, really!
While, it is widely claimed the Serie A side are not willing to do business in January but they could definitely entertain offers for the 19-year-old when the transfer window reopens next summer.
Oh, and one the side note, Blues will face competition from Premier League rivals Tottenham for Diawara’s signature too. Like that matters!
Moving on, Chelsea are interested in offering our legend, Frank Lampard, a return to Stamford Bridge, according to the reports.
The 38-year-old announced his departure from New York City FC yesterday after his two-year spell with the MLS outfit and it is claimed that the Blues are keen to hand him a role in their backroom staff to help with the development of their players.
Moving on to our midfield, Chelsea are reportedly set to renew their interest in Roma duo Kostas Manolas and Radja Nainggolan.
Blues boss Antonio Conte was heavily linked with trying to sign the pair in the summer, but a move failed to materialize due to various reasons.
But Italian outlet CalcioMercato claim Conte remains keen on signing the duo, with Manolas thought to be stalling over a new deal at Roma.
While Kante and Matic are doing impressively, Nainggolan would provide the Blues that midfield cover the Italian is looking for.
