Chelsea are reportedly targeting a £90m double signing before the close of the transfer window.
The Blues confirmed the £21m arrival of Pedro from Barcelona this afternoon after swooping late to snare the decorated Spanish attacker away from the clutches of Manchester United.
Left-back Baba Rahman also arrived at Stamford Bridge this week for a fee believed to be around £22m, and now Jose Mourinho is apparently targeting Juventus superstar Paul Pogba and Everton defender John Stones after prescribing big spending to solve Chelsea’s concerning start to the season.
The Premier League champions have already had three bids rejected for Stones, the last of which was £30m, but the Daily Express claims that they would be willing to go as high as £40m for the 21-year-old.
Juve midfielder Pogba tops the wish-list of many European giants and is valued at around £50m.
Bookmakers have slashed the odds on him moving to Stamford Bridge from 7/1 to 6/4 amid rumours that he could be involved in a swap deal involving unwanted Chelsea winger Juan Cuadrado.
