Chelsea target Wesley Sneijder

Published 5 Comments

Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is reported to have identified Galatasaray midfielder Wesley Sneijder as a potential summer acquisition as the Portuguese looks to make his mark in the transfer window following his return to Stamford Bridge.

According to The Sun, Mourinho is keen to recruit his former charge before August's transfer deadline, having previously worked with Sneijder during their time together at the San Siro with Inter.

Sneijder only joined Galatasaray from Inter during the January transfer window - arriving on a three-and-a-half year deal - but the Turkish champions would are reported to be willing to lose for the Netherlands international this summer.

The 28-year-old has struggled under Galatarsaray manager Fatih Terim who, it is claimed, would consider allowing Sneijder to leave Istanbul provided a reasonable offer was made by Chelsea.

Mourinho insists he plans to work with the players already at his disposal before entering into the transfer market with any great purpose, but the new Chelsea boss continues to be linked with a number of potential signings.

Former Real Madrid charges Sami Khedira and Fabio Coentrao are reported to be on the radar of Mourinho following his arrival at Chelsea, while the 50-year-old is also said to be following Daniele de Rossi of Roma.

Also reported to be on the shortlist of Mourinho are Manchester City striker Edin Dzeko and Fiorentina forward Stevan Jovetic, who has also been linked with a transfer to Arsenal.
