The Blues have been relatively quiet in the transfer market so far this summer as the only additions to the first-team picture have been goalkeeper Asmir Begovic and striker Radamel Falcao, but it appears their poor start to the season has prompted a reaction from the board at Stamford Bridge.
It’s understood a new central defender is at the top of manager Jose Mourinho’s wish list and a third bid for highly-rated Everton starlet John Stones is expected to be launched before the transfer window closes next month and that could throw John Terry’s future into further doubt after his half-time withdrawal at the Etihad Stadium.
The West London outfit are also thought to be in the market for a new central midfielder and an attack-minded player as Mourinho looks for a solution to his team’s early season slump.
