Chelsea are keen on landing yet another Barcelona kid as they prepare a swoop for Sergi Roberto according to talkSPORT.

The 19-year-old midfielder would command a fee in the region of £5million, but the La Liga giants are likely to demand a buy-back clause in any potential deal.

Blues boss Andre Villas-Boas has already raided Camp Nou for Oriol Romeu, who moved to Stamford Bridge in the summer, and made his first Barclays Premier League start for Chelsea in the weekend victory over Wolves.
