Chelsea are apparently keen on signing Juventus defender Kwadwo Asamoah, according to ‘The Mirror’. The defender would be available for around £15 million and has a keen admirer in new Chelsea Boss Antonio Conte, having played for the Italian previously in Serie A.

Meanwhile Portuguese publication ‘O Jogo’ are claiming that Chelsea are leading the race to sign Porto winger Yacine Brahimi, ahead of Liverpool and AC Milan.

The Algeria International is a sought after product in European football and has turned a number of heads over recent seasons.

Finally, the futures of both Nemanja Matic and Diego Costa is unclear. Costa has said to be missing home for the biggest part of last season and hasn’t settled in London. Offers are said to be on the table from former club Atletico Madrid to bring him back to Spain.

While reports suggest that new Manchester United Boss Jose Mourinho is keen on bringing Nemanja Matic to Old Trafford this season, who could be interested in the move having lost motivation at Stamford Bridge.
