Chelsea are set to make a summer move for Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba, according to the Express.
It has been revealed that the French international, who is now recognised as one of the leading young midfielders in world football, is wanted by a number of clubs, with the player's former side Manchester United also interested in his services.
However, it appears that Jose Mourinho and Co. at Stamford Bridge are ready to pull out all the stops in order to lure the midfielder back to England's elite division.
In fact, with the reported fee for the player's services set at around the £40 million mark, it appears that the Blues are ready to allow as many as three of their players to leave the club in part exchange for the Frenchman.
It has been suggested that the trio of Ramires, Andre Schurrle and John Obi Mikel could all be offered to the Italian giants as the Blues look to improve in the midfield department.

It's not entirely surprising that Mourinho is ready to offload the trio, with all three struggling to hold down a place in the club's starting XI throughout the course of the campaign.
Struggles at Chelsea
Ramires, despite previously proving a key figure for the club, has endured a tricky time this term, while Obi Mikel has been used sparingly under the guidance of Mourinho. Schurrle, on the other hand, has failed to prove his credentials of late, and has been linked with a move away from the club in recent time.
There's no doubt about it, though, Pogba appears to be worth it, with the Frenchman having played a key role in Juventus' domination in the Serie A over the past couple of years.
And, if Chelsea are able to add the Serie A star to their ranks, then they'd possess one of the greatest midfields in world football. With Cesc Fabregas and Nemanja Matic already plying their trade at the club, the Blues certainly look in place for Premier League domination over the coming years.
