Chelsea are reportedly planning a move for Inter Milan’s €70 million-rated Italian international Nicolo Barella. Chelsea are interested in signing Italian midfielder Nicolo Barella during the summer transfer window, according to Calciomercato. Inter Milan players Milan Skriniar and Denzel Dumfries have also been identified as transfer targets by the Blues. Chelsea have only made two signings in a transfer window that is critical to their rebuild. The west Londoners have lost Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen, and Cesar Azpilicueta and Marcos Alonso could also leave. N’Golo Kante and Jorginho, both in midfield, have entered the final year of their contracts and have been linked with summer exits from Chelsea. As a result, the Blues have begun to prepare for the possibility of losing one of the two aforementioned midfielders. Frenkie de Jong of Barcelona has recently been linked with Chelsea, according to reports that owner Todd Boehly met with Barcelona president Joan Laporta. Manchester United is also interested in de Jong and has reportedly reached an agreement with the Blaugrana. The Dutchman, on the other hand, prefers to remain in Barcelona.

However, convincing Inter, who need to sell a few players to balance their books, to sell the Italian international may be difficult. Barella, who has four years left on his contract, could cost more than €70 million this summer as Inter see him as an important member of their squad. Over three seasons, the Italian international has made 134 appearances for the Serie A club, scoring 11 goals and assisting 34 others. Chelsea, meanwhile, are interested in Dutch right-back Denzel Dumfries. The Blues are eager to add defensive reinforcements to prepare for Azpilicueta’s possible departure and have identified the Inter Milan winger as a possible signing. In terms of Barella, Tottenham Hotspur have been linked this summer, while Real Madrid are looking into signing him next summer. It will be interesting to see if Chelsea is successful in signing the Italian international for a fee of €70 million.
