Chelsea are ready to offer Barcelona even more money to land 11-year-old Xavier Simons, reports the Metro.
It's previously been suggested that the Blues have offered the Catalan outfit a huge compensation package in order to secure the services of the youngster, with the club looking to improve their youth system.
But, now it appears that Chelsea want a quick response from Barcelona, which could lead to them spending even more money on the midfielder than they had initially planned. It's been claimed that the Blues have also offered the youngster's family a package, as they look to tempt the talent to England.
It remains to be seen as to whether the player's family and Barcelona accept Chelsea's offer, or whether the Spanish outfit keep him in their famed academy. Of course, at just 11-years-old, the youngster has a long way to go before making it in professional football, but he certainly seems someone to look out for in the coming years.
Chelsea fans will be hoping to see more youth stars come through their academy in the coming years, with the club having spent huge amounts of money throughout the Roman Abramovich era.
For now though, Chelsea fans will just be hoping for another three points this weekend. The Blues have made a fantastic start to this season, having secured nine points out of nine so far this term.
However, they will come up against a Swansea City side who also have a 100% record in England's elite division this season. Jose Mourinho will be hoping to call upon star duo Eden Hazard and Diego Costa for tomorrow's clash after their recent injuries.
Spanish international Costa will be hoping to continue his fine start to the season with another fine performance this weekend. Having hit four league goals already, the former Atletico man picked up the Premier League's Player of the Month award for August.
Tomorrow's clash could also see new signing Loic Remy play for the club for the first time, but he may have to settle for a place on the bench alongside the likes of Didier Drogba and Co.
