Chelsea have been linked with a summer transfer move for Barcelona midfielder Frenkie de Jong.

Manchester United were first favourites to sign the Netherlands international, but the Dutchman prefers a move to Chelsea.

According to Spanish transfer expert Gerard Romero, Chelsea would push hard for Werner this summer.

He reports that the Blues are ready to pay ‘whatever it takes’ to land the Barcelona midfielder.

Romero has previously reported that De Jong’s  departure from Barcelona ‘is imminent’ this summer.

Barca are said to want over €80m for De Jong.

Meanwhile, Spanish media outlet Mundo Deportivo, claim that De Jong would be open to a move to Stamford Bridge but only if he can’t remain at Barca.

Revelo also insist that Chelsea won’t give up on signing Frenkie de Jong anytime soon.
