With Chelsea, once a transfer fee can be agreed, prepare to let Cesc Fabregas depart for a spell in La Ligue, with Monaco, transfer speculation, today, implies that the club may be looking at bringing in another midfielder to fill the void.
According to the news vehicle, Goal, Chelsea are one of a number of clubs looking towards Serie A and the Cagliari midfielder, Nicol Barella.
Barella, just 21-years-of-age, is rated in the £45 million bracket and, according to our referenced source, is also interesting Napoli and Inter Milan.
However, if Chelsea are to snare their man then there is, so it would seem, one almighty obstacle to be overcome.
It is suggested that the youngster is reluctant to leave Serie A during the transfer window, obviously preferring life in his native Italy.
But you just never know how this one might turn out.
Here at Vital Chelsea, we’ll endeavour to keep you informed.
