Chelsea could use Brazilian playmaker Oscar in a bid to lure Frenchman Paul Pogba to Stamford Bridge this summer.

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Blues are ready to press ahead with a move for the Juventus superstar, who has been rated at an incredible £70 million ahead of the summer transfer window. 

Pogba, formerly of Manchester United, has gone from strength-to-strength in Serie A over the last couple of years, and is now recognised as one of the leading midfielders in world football. 

In fact, the dynamic midfielder played a key role in helping the Turin-based outfit secure their place in last season's Champions League final, but it now appears that his long-term future is in doubt with some of the biggest clubs in the world interested in his services.

Huge interest 

Chelsea, then, may well look to move ahead of their rivals with a bid for the player, with the same report claiming that the quartet of Real Madrid, PSG, Barcelona and Manchester City are also interested in the Juventus man. 

The report goes on to claim, however, that Oscar wants to remain in west London, but it appears that Jose Mourinho and Co. could attempt to force him out, as they go about landing Pogba sooner rather than later. 

Oscar has enjoyed relative success at Stamford Bridge under the guidance of Mourinho, but the Portuguese tactician has already proved that he can be ruthless with his players when showing them the Chelsea exit door.

Incredible signing 

And, at the end of the day, the signing of Pogba would represent a huge one for the Blues, as the go in search of further improvement over the coming years. 

Ultimately, after achieving success in the Capital One Cup and Premier League last term, Chelsea will be desperate to press ahead in the Champions League after elimination at the Round of 16 stage at the hands of PSG in the last campaign. 

There's no doubt about it, Pogba would only improve Mourinho's chances of getting his hands on the trophy, as the Blues would have a formidable midfield at their disposal. 

The Frenchman would no doubt sit alongside Nemanja Matic at the heart of the Chelsea side, which may well hand Spaniard Cesc Fabregas a role ahead of the duo in the midfield department.

In truth, the whole of Europe, let alone the Premier League, would struggle to contend that star-studded midfield. Signing Pogba would give Chelsea the platform to achieve greatness under Mourinho.
