Chelsea have a three-man shortlist of midfielders to sign in the summer despite signing Enzo Fernandez from Benfica for £107million in January, according to reports

According to The Telegraph, Chelsea will sign another central midfielder in the summer and have Declan Rice, Moises Caicedo and Jude Bellingham in a three-man shortlist.

Bellingham reportedly tops that list but Chelsea face competition from Liverpool, Manchester City and Real Madrid for the transfer of the 19 year old midfielder.

West Ham and Borussia Dortmund will demand in excess of £100million for Rice and Bellingham respectively while Brighton rejected an offer of £70million from Arsenal for Caicedo in January.
