Chelsea are reportedly lining up a sensational £110m double raid for France internationals Paul Pogba and Antoine Griezmann.
The defending Premier League champions, who sacked managed Jose Mourinho last week, lie 15th in the standings having lost nine of their opening 17 fixtures.
New interim boss Guus Hiddink wants to bring in some world-class players during the forthcoming January transfer window to revive the Blues’ campaign, starting with bids for the Juventus and Atletico Madrid stars.
Pogba; 22, who left Premier League rivals Manchester United back in 2012, has scored four and assisted another six goals in 24 appearances in all competitions for the defending Serie A champions so far this season.
Meanwhile Griezmann; 24, who cost Atletico £24m from Real Sociedad only last year, has found the back of the net an impressive 12 times in 22 games for the La Liga outfit this term.
