Chelsea are targeting a £15m move for Southampton’s full-back Cedric Soares, according to the Daily Mirror.
The report suggests Antonio Conte is planning on adding three players to his squad before the close of the transfer window.
And the Italian is planning a move for Cedric to provide competition for Victor Moses.
Chelsea are not only interested in Cedric, though, for their right-flank with Serge Aurier having been told he is up for sale by Paris Saint-Germain and needing to make a fresh start to revitalise his career. An interest has also been registered in Valencia’s Joao Cancelo.
More ambitiously Chelsea are also still interested in Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain, who has gone into his final year of contract at Arsenal, but have been told, so far, that Arsene Wenger will not sell the England international.
