Following their miserable start to their Premier League defence; Blues manager Jose Mourinho is eager to strengthen his attacking options ahead of tomorrow’s close of the summer transfer window.

Despite already luring Spain international Pedro to Stamford Bridge from FC Barcelona earlier this month, Chelsea are still trying their luck by persuading France midfielder Paul Pogba to return to the English top flight.

The 22-year-old, who already has 23 international caps to his name, scored ten goals in 41 appearances in all competitions for Serie A champions Juventus last season.

Regarded as one of Europe’s hottest prospects; Pogba is likely to cost upwards of £72m due to his meteoric rise since the Italian giants snapped up the dynamic midfielder from Manchester United on a FREE transfer back in August 2012.

Pogba made just seven first-team debuts for the Red Devils before leaving the Old Trafford outfit following former manager Sir Alex Ferguson’s indication that he had disrespected the club after turning down a new long-term contract.
