Chelsea may be struggling on the pitch, but they remain among the most active in the transfer market.
They have already signed defender Benoît Badiashile from Monaco and striker David Datro Fofana from Monaco for a combined fee in excess of £50 million, and continue to be linked with a host of names, including Enzo Fernandez, and Mudryk Mkyhailo.
And now it emerges that they are also interested in a player who is one of the main transfer targets for Tottenham.
23-year old Pedro Potro, who currently plays his football in Portugal for Sporting Lisbon, has been identified by Antonio Conte as a player he would like to bring to the North London Stadium to fill the right back spot, as he looks to bolster his defensive options.
The entry of big spending Chelsea into the market for the player complicates the picture for Spurs and is bound to push his price up, with the West London club not afraid to spend big and hand out lengthy contracts.
