Chelsea target Jose Callejon will reportedly be allowed to leave Napoli if Carlo Ancelotti’s side can secure a deal for Fiorentina star Federico Chiesa this summer.
The Blues have been heavily linked with a move for the Spaniard and according to reports from Italy, Chiesa’s potential arrival at the Stadio San Paolo could have a domino effect.
Napoli’s interest in recruiting the Italian international has been well documented in recent times and according to Radio Kiss Kiss Napoli, as cited by Football Italia, a huge bid worth €75m has been submitted to Fiorentina.
This move would apparently open the door for Chelsea target Callejon, who is also being courted by AC Milan, to leave Napoli.
Chelsea are hoping to confirm Maurizio Sarri as their new first-team manager in the immediate future and reports have indicated that he would like to reunite with a whole host of Napoli players at Stamford Bridge.
Among those who he would like to recruit is Callejon, but it seems his future in Naples rests on the club’s pursuit of the highly-rated Chiesa.
IPSWICH LOOKING TO SIGN CHALOBAH ON LOAN
Trevoh Chalobah has reportedly held talks with Championship side Ipswich ahead of a loan move.
According to an exclusive report from Ipswich website, TWTD, the player has visited the club’s training ground to discuss a loan move.
The report claims that a season-long loan deal is being considered, as Chalobah looks to get his first taste of regular senior football.
The two clubs are yet to agree on the terms of the deal. Chelsea will be keen to ensure that the move is worthwhile for Chalobah.
Chalobah is highly thought of at Chelsea, with the Blues keen for him to take the next step of his development.
The defender was recently invited to train with the England senior squad before they travelled out to Russia for the World Cup, a sign of how highly he is rated.
Blackburn have also been credited with an interest in the versatile defender, who can play on the right or through the middle.
