Forget Aurier: Chelsea to launch bid for €15m-rated impressive Portuguese star

Chelsea are planning to bring in three more players before the transfer window closes and they are said to be interested in signing Southampton fullback Cedric Soares.

Chelsea have signed Antonio Rudiger, Tiemoue Bakayoko and Alvaro Morata for a combined fee of around £150 million while Willy Caballero joined on a free transfer.

But the Blues boss wants to bolster his wing-backs,with no competition for Victor Moses and Marcos Alonso.

And the Italian manager has been linked with a move for Portugal international Soares while still maintaining his interests in Juventus’s Alex Sandro as well as Paris-Saint Germain’s Serge Aurier.

The Premier League champions have Champions League football added to their fixture this season and Conte wants more players in his team.

As per the Telegraph, the Chelsea boss has the Saints defender Soares, 25, on his transfer list and would like to bring him to the club this summer.

Also, Chelsea’s efforts to sign Sandro has been met with hard stance from Juventus with their latest attempt rebuffed by the Italian champions but they are still hoping a deal could be done for the Brazilian this summer

However, Aurier seems more likely to move to Stamford Bridge, with PSG reportedly ready to let go of him.

Arsenal midfielder Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain and Leicester City’s Danny Drinkwater are other players also targeted by Conte.

The star is valued at 15,00 Mill. € according to transfermarkt.
