Chelsea are preparing a deal worth £74m for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, according to Football Express.
The former Manchester United midfielder has been linked with a summer exit from Juventus.
Although he has played a massive part in their three successive Serie A titles, if recent history is anything to go by, the tendency in Serie A is to sell important players abroad – Ibrahimovic, Pastore, Jovetic, Thiago Silva, Verratti and many more.
In particular, the French international has reportedly attracted the likes of Real Madrid, Paris Saint Germain and Barcelona but it is now understood that Chelsea have emerged as front runners.
Blues boss Jose Mourinho is keen to pursue a summer move and is preparing a deal worth £74m – very close to the price Juventus fixed of £100m. Yet, part of the money would be covered by offering Brazilian midfield pair Oscar and Ramires in exchange for Pogba.
