Chelsea is in the running for FC Porto winger Luis Diaz, according to Tribal Football. The Colombian joined the Portuguese side in 2019 and has since established himself as a crucial part of the first team. He has five goals and one assist from nine appearances this season and is sought after by a host of European heavyweights. The Blues have now been added to the list of his suitors.

Chelsea have burned their hands in recent times with the hiring of Hakim Ziyech and Christian Pulisic. Neither player managed to hold onto a first-team spot, forcing the Blues to seek a solution in the market. Luis Diaz has appeared on their radar.

The 24-year-old prefers to play in left midfield, but is versatile enough to operate on either flank.

Chelsea have reportedly joined Bayern Munich, Barcelona and Liverpool in scouting FC Porto star Luis Diaz.

Chelsea, however, will not be given a walk with the Colombian. Luis Diaz is also wanted by Tottenham Hotspur and Liverpool and could spark a bidding war for his services next year. Thomas Tuchel would like the player in his roster as the Blues could use more firepower down the flanks.

Juventus interested in Timo Werner

However, Juventus has now entered the fray and is ready to fight for his signature. The Bianconeri believe the German could be a replacement for Cristiano Ronaldo.

Chelsea to follow next Kevin De Bruyne

Chelsea follows Pogon Szczecin prodigy Kacper Kozlowski, according to The Hard Tackle via Fichajes. The 17-year-old has been dubbed the next Kevin De Bruyne and is already being watched by top clubs across Europe.

The Blues were also impressed with his technical prowess and ability to slide past defenders with ease. Pogon Szczecin is ready to cash in on their star and Chelsea are planning to take him to Stamford Bridge. However, they will face stiff competition from Manchester City for his signature.
