Chelsea are eyeing midfield transfers for this summer as the Blues prepare for a rebuild under Mauricio Pochettino.

Signing a defensive midfielder is one of the priorities for Pochettino when he becomes Chelsea boss.

Romano told CaughtOffside: “I already mentioned in the last two months some of the names they like, including Romeo Lavia and Manu Kone. But the decision will be made with the new coach, likely to be Pochettino. It’s not a two players race between these two, it’s something absolutely open.”
