The French international has become regarded as one of the best young players in the world in recent times, and is now being heavily tracked by some of the biggest clubs in Europe.

Chelsea may have the edge over their rivals, however, with Juve also keen on signing Blues playmaker Oscar this summer, according to the Daily Express.

Although the Brazilian starlet has been a major player for Jose Mourinho’s title-winning side, it may be that the presence of similar players such as Eden Hazard, Willian and Juan Cuadrado will persuade the club to let him go if it means bringing Pogba to Stamford Bridge.

The 22-year-old would be the calibre of player Chelsea need to progress further in the Champions League next season.
