Chelsea are reportedly considering making a summer move for Barcelona midfielder Sergio Busquets, who is said to be keen to leave the Camp Nou at the end of the season.

Busquets has also been linked with a move from Barcelona to Manchester City, but Chelsea now appear to be leading the race to sign the 24-year-old Spain international.

According to The People, Chelsea chairman Roman Abramovich will sanction a £25 million bid for Busquets in the summer transfer window, while the player's representatives have intimated that he is keen to move on from Barcelona.

Barcelona, however, are likely to be loath to sell a player of such supreme talents for a fee close to the one Abramovich has in mind, and Chelsea will have their work cut out in convincing the Catalans to let Busquets leave.

Chelsea are reported to see Busquets as the ideal player to play the midfield anchor role at Stamford Bridge, with the Euro 2012 winner seen as a superior alternative to John Obi Mikel.
