Chelsea are ready to pay £72m for Juventus star Paul Pogba, according to the Daily Express. It is being reported that that the London club had an initial bid in the area of £55 million rejected, however Roman Abramovic looks set for a second bid. 

The former Manchester United youngster has been in and out of transfer headlines this summer after being linked with the likes of Chelsea, Manchester City and Barcelona.

Reports claim that their pursuit of the Juventus man will not affect their bid for Everton defender John Stones, as they are rumoured to go in for the Englishman for the fourth time in a £40 million bid.

Chelsea have already made one of the biggest signings of the summer after luring 28-year-old winger Pedro from Barcelona in a £21 million move. The Spaniard scored 20 minutes into his debut and set up Costa to make it 2-0. 

Fellow teammate and countryman Cesar Azpilucueta praised Pedro and has a warning for Premier League rivals: "He is hungry to help the team and win trophies. The way he started his first game is amazing".

But it looks like Mourinho is ready to continue spending in this late stage of the transfer window and he will be hoping to improve his side before it closes on September 1.

Chelsea have faced a fairly disappointing start to the season and have already conceded seven goals in their first three games, including a 3-0 defeat to last season's runners up Manchester City. 

However, after Pedro's shining debut and potential signings to come, Chelsea could bring in the reinforcements they need to defend their title. 

Could Pogba make Chelsea Champions League favourites?
