Chelsea has its eyes set on a “exceptional” midfielder at a Champions League team for £53 million


Chelsea is apparently interested in Inter Milan star Nicolo Barella.

Chelsea have reportedly set their sights on a potential double invasion of the Serie A and Champions League team, according to Italian newspaper CMW.

Barella, a central midfielder who could fetch at least €60 million (£53 million) at the San Siro, is reportedly a target for the Blues. However, any transfer could be contingent on a potential contract extension.

According to the source, Graham Potter’s staff also likes Milan Skriniar, a 27-year-old center back who plays for Inter. Chelsea allegedly made attempts to sign him to Stamford Bridge in the summer.

Barella, who has recently played a significant role for Inter, would be a very eye-catching addition to Chelsea.

The “outstanding” Italy international is an excellent No. 8 box-to-box midfielder who brings strong energy and quality to both sides of the field.

He started every Serie A game for Inter this season and has two goals and two assists in eight games.

N’Golo Kante and Jorginho are both over 30, therefore fans believe that the Chelsea midfield engine room will need to be changed soon. The frequent injuries suffered by Kante and Mateo Kovacic also don’t help.

On paper, Barella appears to be a terrific fit for the Premier League, so it would be fantastic to watch him adapt his playing style there.

According to CMW’s report, Liverpool is another prospective suitor for the Inter star, suggesting that Chelsea may not be the only party with an interest.

The level of Chelsea’s interest currently doesn’t seem to be that high. Potter needs some time to consider all of Chelsea’s possibilities in the park’s center and determine how they all match with his ideas.
