The attacking-midfielder is said to be considering a move away from Stamford Bridge after the last disappointing season in Premier League, then the Nerazzurri have reportedly made him a top target after failing to land Sporting Lisbon star Joao Mario to San Siro on a £35m move.

Chelsea are ready to bid £12m for PSV Eindhoven and Colombian international defender Santiago Arias, according to reports in England.

The 24-year-old could be a suprise addition for the Chelseas squad but new boss Antonio Conte wants to give quality and variety to the Blues.

Conte think that Arias can play on either side of the defence throughout pre-season.

Apparently Santiago Arias has joined a top agency and he expressed the desire to find a club in England, while Chelsea scouts have monitored him during the Copa America in USA last month.

Baba Rahman is currently undergoing a medical to join Schalke 04 on a season-long loan as Chelsea and the Bundesliga side have reached a deal, according to SkySports.

The Ghana international left-back joined Chelsea from Augsburg on a £23.5m deal last summer but struggled to break into the starting XI during his first season at Stamford Bridge.

Last night Chelsea lost 3-2 to Real Madrid in the International Champions Cup.

They were 3-0 down until Eden Hazard came off the bench to score twice in the last 10 minutes.

Hazard played as a striker when he bagged his goals and that could suggest a change of position for the Belgian going into the new Premier League season, even more so with Diego Costa‘s future at Stamford Bridge more than a little unstable.
