• Everton & Leicester Stars Appear on Chelsea's Radar as Blues Look to Increase Transfer Involvement

    News Tue 20 Jun 2017

    ​Chelsea are preparing offers for Leicester City’s Riyad Mahrez and Everton midfielder Ross Barkley as they seek to bolster their ranks ahead of their return to the Champions League next season, according to the ​Telegraph.

    Manager Antonio Conte – who is reported to be frustrated with the club’s lack of progress in the transfer market so far – is now ready to sign a new contract to secure his future at the club, and it’s believed Chelsea will now press on with a series of new signings.

    Romelu Lukaku remains a top target, while Juventus star Alex Sandro and Monaco’s Tiemoue Bakayoko are also on the wanted list. However, Mahrez and Barkley have been linked with the club before and the newest report – which has also been carried by the Express – hints that Chelsea will look to take advantage of the uncertainty over Barkley’s future.

    The England international has only 12 months remaining on his contract at Goodison Park and has been the subject of criticism from manager Ronald Koeman in recent months, as the player seems hesitant to sign a new deal. Koeman has made no secret of his desire to only keep players who want to play for the club, and it is expected Barkley will depart for the right offer.

    Mahrez, meanwhile, issued a statement earlier this summer stating his desire to leave Leicester, and the Blues are thought to be looking at the Algerian as a way of bolstering their attacking options.
