The Blues are desperate to land a top quality addition in midfield, and look to have made Koke their priority target, even if it means meeting his £48m buy-out clause.

Manchester United have been strongly linked with the 23-year-old Spanish international in the past, but Chelsea will try to raise funds for a big-money bid by getting rid of Luis.

The Brazilian left-back has not managed to nail down a regular place in Jose Mourinho’s side since moving to Stamford Bridge from Atletico last summer.
