Transfer gossip: Chelsea chasing Bazoer and Nainggolan, Mirror say

A round-up of the latest transfer speculation involving Chelsea…

Chelsea are in talks with Ajax over a deal to sign highly-rated Dutch youngster Riechedly Bazoer, according to the Daily Mirror.

Manchester City are also said to be keen on the midfielder, who is apparently rated at £24m.

Speculation that Bazoer could be set for a move to Chelsea has been fueled by reports that his agent and brother was at the Blues’ Cobham training ground on Friday for talks.

It is claimed that Chelsea have tried to sign Bazoer, who is contracted to Ajax until 2020, twice before but were told his first ­option was a move to Barcelona.

Meanwhile, Chelsea are set to move for Roma midfielder Radja Nainggolan, again according to the Mirror.

It is claimed that the club want to appoint Antonio Conte as manager in the summer and that the Italian is a big fan of Nainggolan and would be keen to work with him at Stamford Bridge.

And the Daily Express have yet again linked Chelsea with Juventus’ former Manchester United midfielder Paul Pogba.
