Chelsea`s desire to bring another midfielder to Stamford Bridge has been upped following the departures of both Oscar and Mikel to the Chinese Super League.

Already heavily linked with Franck Kessie, Click Here, the chances of bringing another target, Steven N`Zonzi, to Stamford Bridge have seemingly increased.

The good folk of The Sun, are reporting that N`Zonzi has rejected a new deal with Sevilla.

Currently, N`Zonzi has a contract that doesn`t expire until 2019 but, more importantly, it contains a release clause that allows him to move to another club for £25 million.

The new deal that N`Zonzi rejected would have upped that release clause to £50 million.

Our referenced source views the rejection as further evidence that N`Zonzi is set to leave Spanish football, which begs the question is he Chelsea bound?
