Chelsea are making good progress on three stunning £50million-plus signings, Football Insider can reveal.
The big-spending Blues are closing in on the captures of Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz and Leicester City left-back Ben Chilwell.
A source at Stamford Bridge has told Football Insider that Chelsea plan to get those deals over the line for making a concerted move for West Ham’s Declan Rice.
Owner Roman Abramovich has given the green light to the London giants spending more than £50m on each of Havertz, Chilwell and Rice this window.
This comes after two statement signings were bagged earlier in the window when Frank Lampard recruited Hakim Ziyech from Ajax and Timo Werner from RB Leipzig.
The deal for Chilwell is the most advanced and comes after Football Insider broke the news at the start of August that Chelsea had made a breakthrough in their pursuit of the England international.
