Chelsea want to sign Inter Milan defender Denzel Dumfries in the January transfer window.
They are likely to face competition, though, with both Newcastle and Tottenham both also interested in the Dutch international.
Dumfries was linked with a move to the Premier League in the summer, with Manchester United also linked with a move for the former PSV Eindhoven star.
However, the wingback remained at the San Siro, although all the indications are that he will leave in January after the World Cup is over.
Chelsea are prepared to pay around £34 million for a player whose attacking style appears ideally suited to a Graham Potter team, who is likely to play with the same wingback formation he deployed to great effect in his previous role with Brighton.
His signing would allow Reece James to play in another position on the pitch, with suggestions that he could play on the right of two other centre backs.
