Blues hope to convince France international to head to London.
Chelsea have been given hope of still being able to sign Paul Pogba after the player’s agent there have been no new talks about signing a contract extension with Juventus, Sky Sports reports.
Reports in Italy have suggested that the reigning Serie A champions are eager to agree fresh terms with their France international.
Pogba’s current deal runs until 2016 and the Italians are said to be keen to extend his contract by another three years.
The former Manchester United man has been heavily linked with moves to both Chelsea and Paris Saint Germain this summer and the Serie A champions are aware that a new deal would put an end to the constant speculation surrounding his future.
Juve have no intention of selling, but Pogba’s representative claims they are also yet to sit down and thrash out an improved contract to keep the 21-year-old in Turin.
“I’ve not spoken yet with (sporting director Giuseppe) Marotta and I’ve no plans to meet him in the near future,” agent Mino Raiola said.
“Anything is possible for Paul.
“He could remain at Juve without renewing his contract as he is committed until 2016. It is also possible that he could decide to sign an extension before the start of the new Italian season.”
