Chelsea have emerged as rumoured suitors for Manchester United defender Harry Maguire.
Following the exits of Andreas Christensen and Antonio Rudiger this summer, the Blues have been quite busy strengthening their defence.
Kalidou Koulibaly and Marc Cucurella have arrived at Stamford Bridge, but Thomas Tuchel’s side are still keen to sign another centre-back before the transfer window shuts down on September 1.
The Blues have moved to rival Newcastle United to sign the 21-year-old winger, the PA news agency understands.
Chelsea are thought to be in negotiations with the Toffees over a permanent switch for the England U-21 international.
The 31-year-old has been heavily linked with a switch to the Catalan giants throughout the summer transfer window.
He has previously acknowledged that he would like to return to his homeland, his solitary appearance in Spanish football coming for Real Madrid in 2010.
According to SPORT, the Blues are prepared to submit a bid to secure the services of the Dutchman in the summer transfer window.
The 25-year-old midfielder is also a target for Manchester United, but he does not want to move to Old Trafford.
