Chelsea boss targets double swoop

Chelsea boss Carlo Ancelotti has admitted he is interested in Everton midfielder Jack Rodwell, while Asmir Begovic is also on his radar, as he looks to freshen up his squad with younger players.

The 19-year-old recently pledged his future to the Toffees, after reportedly seeing a £16 million offer from the Blues turned down by David Moyes.

However, Chelsea will want to flex their spending muscles in the near future – with Manchester City having overtaken them in the transfer stakes this summer.

And Rodwell would be a clever signing, should Ancelotti pull it off, because he would give them another homegrown player, of which they need at least eight this season.

Ancelotti recently admitted his admiration for Rodwell, who is now targeting an England call up if he impresses at Goodison Park, saying: “Rodwell of Everton is a good player.”

Meanwhile, the Premier League champions are to continue their pursuit of Stoke keeper Asmir Begovic – despite having a |£4 million bid rejected.

The Bosnian youngster only moved to the Britannia Stadium in January but the Blues are readying another offer, which would make the Potters a quick profit.

However, with Thomas Sorensen coming to the twilight of his career, Tony Pulis has high hopes for the former Portsmouth stopper and will hope he becomes Stoke No.1 in the near future.
