A round-up of the latest transfer speculation involving Chelsea…
Chelsea midfielder John Mikel Obi is wanted by Besiktas, according to the Daily Mail.
The Turkish club are reported to have turned their attention to Mikel after a deal to sign Liverpool’s Lucas Leiva stalled.
Chelsea have been tipped to sell midfielder Mikel, 28, particularly if they pull off the signing of Paul Pogba from Juventus.
Meanwhile, there continues to be speculation over the future of John Stones as Chelsea pursue a deal to sign the Everton defender.
Stones has asked for a move but Everton manager Roberto Martinez insisted after his side’s League Cup game against Barnsley on Wednesday that the England international would not be sold.
The Daily Mirror, printed shortly before Martinez’s latest comments, reports that Chelsea are in talks with Everton over a £34m deal for Stones, 21, and that the club believes they will sign both him and Pogba.
