Swap deals have been talked up as a move that could become increasingly common in the near future, and Chelsea could be involved in one.

Reports claim the west London giants could get the chance to sign Miralem Pjanic from Juventus as they eye a swoop for Jorginho.

Maurizio Sarri notably signed Jorginho from his old club Napoli when he first took over at Chelsea, and it now seems he wants him at his current side Juventus as well.

Pjanic has been a top performer in his Serie A career so could be a useful addition for Frank Lampard if this exchange goes through.

Elsewhere, Chelsea could add another midfielder to their squad in the form of Manchester United starlet Angel Gomes.

The Red Devils youngster is said to be angered by Ole Gunnar Solskjaer targeting similar players to him in the transfer market.

And the Blues look the favourites to win the race for his signature as he nears the end of his deal at Old Trafford.

Finally, Philippe Coutinho’s agent has provided an update on his future amid links with CFC in recent times.

However, Kia Joorabchian insists he hasn’t held talks with anyone about a move for Coutinho, despite speculation that a move was close to being agreed.

“What do you think I’m going to decide? I can stay in Rome or go to the pouring rain of Merseyside to play for Everton? Please don’t ask me that one again.” – Edin Dzeko when asked about a move to Everton. Read more here.
