Chelsea offered Pjanic, Mourinho wants Blues defender and youngster eyes exit

Chelsea have been offered Miralem Pjanic as a potential summer signing with Barcelona needing to offload some of their highest earners to keep in line with La Liga's reduced salary cap.

It's an area where Thomas Tuchel could be looking to strengthen, after loaning out Billy Gilmour to Norwich City on a season long-loan.

Here's the latest from Daily Star Sport on Chelsea's latest dealings in the transfer market…

Chelsea offered Pjanic

Chelsea could look to rival neighbours Tottenham for the signing of Barcelona midfielder Miralem Pjanic.

The Bosnian maestro only joined the Catalan giants last summer but looks destined to leave the Camp Nou after just 12 months, with Ronald Koeman needing to reduce their wage bill by over €200 million.

Back in May, Le10 Sport reported that Pjanic had been offered to Chelsea and PSG as a potential summer signing.

With Tuchel not acting on the transfer straight away, it would seem that 31-year-old was not on a priority for the German who was going to take his time and consider the offer.

But, rivals Tottenham have been heavily linked with a move for Pjanic and Chelsea will need to act fast if they are to take advantage of Barcelona's offer.

Mourinho wants Blues defender

Jose Mourinho is taking a look at his former club as he eyes a new left-back.The self-acclaimed 'Special One' is onto his ninth club, having penned a three-year deal at the Stadio Olympico.

As one of his first moves in charge, Mourinho has gone back to Chelsea to try and secure one of his main summer targets.

Sky Sports journalist Angelo Mangiante is reporting that Roma have held talks with Emerson Palmieri over a potential return.

The 26-year-old spent three seasons in the Italian capital before joining the Blues in 2018; the report suggests Chelsea are holding out for €25 million.

Youngster eyes exit

Trevor Chalobah looks set to leave the Blues this summer after failing to make an appearance for the senior side.

The 22-year-old has had three successive loan spells since 2018; first in the championship with Ipswich and Huddersfield before joining Ligue Un side Lorient last season.

Express and Star journalist Joseph Masi claims West Brom are keeping close tabs on Chalobah and are readying a move.

The youngster would become new Baggies boss Valerien Ismael's second summer signing.
