Chelsea transfer rumours
The Blues may be looking for alternatives to the off-form Cesc Fabregas in midfield, with Koke showing himself to be one of Europe’s finest creative midfielders in recent years.
Luis is another of Chelsea’s disappointing summer signings, having failed to break past Cesar Azpilicueta in the first-team, and he seems likely to be sold to help fund the move.
The 23-year-old Spaniard has a release clause of around £48m, which Chelsea seem ready to pay after news of their cash boost this summer.
