The Turkish side are reportedly ready to place a bid to sign the 21-year-old as a replacement for Caner Erkin, who is set to join Inter Milan after playing the Euros.

Baba Rahman moved to Stamford Bridge for £14m from Augsburg last summer but struggled to break into the Blues’ starting XI and Chelsea are expected to be keen on a move for Juventus Ghanian Kwadwo Asamoah, who might replace him.

Chelsea are attempting to add depth to the defensive department. Recently, the Blues have been pursuing Napoli centre-back Kalidou Koulibaly.

Report from the Daily Mail suggest that the London based club have had a bid in the region of £19.2m rejected by the Italian side, with them supposedly holding out for £30m.

Koulibaly himself admits he would be happy to remain in Italy but if he is to leave, he would like it to be arranged sooner rather than later.

“I have not talked to [Antonio Conte] but that may be soon. The game in England could be suitable for me but I like Italy. I do not press for a transfer but I hope to sign a renewal with Napoli or we proceed to other solutions.”

Gladbach‘s sporting director Max Eberi told German website Sport Bild that he is willing to break the clubs transfer record to make the deal happen.

“We only give the money out, which we did.

Furio Valcareggi, the agent of Chelsea target Emanuele Giaccherini, believes that his current club Sunderland will not have a big asking price for the unfavoured forward, despite impressing at the European Championship with Italy.

Giaccherini joined The Black Cats in 2013 for £6.5m. He made 43 appearances for the club in a stop-start manner and spent last year on loan at Bologna in his native Italy.

Valcareggi is seemingly pushing for a transfer to Chelsea, even more so now that Antonio Conte is almost on his way to Stamford Bridge.

“Giaccherini is a player who played 80 percent of the games for a Juventus that had [Paul] Pogba, [Andrea] Pirlo, [Arturo] Vidal and [Claudio] Marchisio in the midfield.

“Conte likes him a lot and Chelsea would be a dream. It’s still too early to talk about his future. After the Euros, whoever wants to buy him will not have to pay a high price to Sunderland.”

Chelsea centre-back Gary Cahill spoke after goalless draw with Slovakia.

Wales qualified as first after beating Russia, that have been eliminated from Euro 2016.

The 30-year-old has admitted his frustration after losing their 1st place in their group: “We tried and tried time and time again but they shut the door in our face.”

“It’s disappointing for us tonight because in all three group games we’ve had the majority of possession.”

Then Cahill added: “We dominated the play from start to finish tonight but we couldn’t unlock the door and it’s disappointing for us.”

“We had the ball constantly but we didn’t have the cutting edge to open them up.”

“In games like that sometimes you need something a little bit special when they just sit back with a bank of five and four.”

Chelsea star Eden Hazard, when asked about the possibility to play alongside Belgium team-mate at Stamford Bridge next season, told Sky Sports News HQ: “I don’t know, I don’t want to talk about this.

“But Romelu is a big striker, he’s a good guy and a good friend of mine. It’s always good to play with the best in the world.”

Also Arsenal have reportedly entered the race to sign him but Chelsea remain keen on signing their former striker, who scored a brace in the last game with Belgium, in which they defeated Republic of Ireland 3-0.
