CHELSEA are in constant contact with Juventus star Paul Pogba over a possible £76million transfer, according to reports.
The France star is wanted by a number of top European clubs this summer including Barcelona and Real Madrid after helping Juve land their fifth consecutive Serie A title.
But news outlet Get French Football News claims that Chelsea are leading the race to sign Pogba, who has privately admitted that he is ready for a new challenge if the right offer presents itself.
Former Juventus boss Antonio Conte, who signed Pogba on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2012, has told the Blues they must make an attempt to sign the central midfielder to avoid any repeats of last season, but club chiefs could be forced to stump up as much as £76million.
The report adds that Chelsea are in constant contact with Pogba’s entourage as they look to tempt him to Stamford Bridge, with the player represented by Zlatan Ibrahimovic’s agent Mino Raiola.
