Reports making the round claims Chelsea are prepared to challenge AC Milan in the race to sign £45million-rated Denis Suarez from Barcelona in January.
Milan are looking to sign Suarez on loan with an option to keep him permanently from next summer.
Suarez, 24, has been surplus to requirements for the Catalans since the start of the 2018-19 season.
The Spaniard is apparently looking to leave but Barcelona are said to want money up front in the New Year.
It is understood that could play into Chelsea’s hands as the Daily Express say a deal is being eyed to bring him to London.
Having made 27 appearances in all competitions last term, the former Villarreal man has been restricted to just two so far this campaign, as the arrivals of Arthur and Arturo Vidal have added further competition in the Barca engine room.
Suarez joined Manchester City youth ranks from Celta Vigo back in 2011. He made just two senior appearances before returning to Spain to join Barcelona in 2013.
Denis is considered a further attacking alternative at Barca, placing him in competition also with Malcom and Munir, two other squad members who have been used sparingly.
