Chelsea are now convinced that they stand a chance of signing the duo of Paul Pogba and John Stones in this transfer window.
As reported by the Independent, it has been claimed that Blues director Marina Granovskaia is in contact with Italian giants Juventus over the possibility of signing Pogba, who has been rated at an incredible £70 million.
Stones, on the other hand, who reportedly handed in a transfer request at Goodison Park yesterday afternoon, has been linked with a £30m switch to west London, with the same report from the Independent claiming that Roman Abramovich is willing to spend as much as £100m on new transfers in the next week.
Pogba, of course, is recognised as one of the leading young midfielders in world football, so would no doubt make a remarkable coup for Mourinho and Co. at the Bridge. The French international - formerly of Manchester United - has gone from strength-to-strength in recent years, but would cost the Blues a British record should they secure his signature.
There's no doubt about, the duo of Stones and Pogba would only improve Chelsea for the long-term, but the club's hierarchy have it all to do to complete the deals in the next week.
Worth the money
Ultimately, £100m is an incredible amount of money to spend on two players, but this duo really do appear to be worth it.
At the end of the day, despite a wonderful campaign last time round, the Blues are in need of improvement at the back, and Stones really could put pressure on the duo of John Terry and Gary Cahill. The Everton man would learn from the experienced Chelsea stars, too, and would only improve at Stamford Bridge under the guidance of Jose Mourinho.
Pogba would surely prove the ideal signing for Chelsea: a midfield trio of the Juventus superstar, Nemanja Matic and Cesc Fabregas would no doubt make the Blues one of the favourites to secure Champions League glory this season.
