Chelsea look set to secure the signing of Barcelona teenager Sergio Gomez this summer, according to reports.
The Blues have been linked with a host of new players as Antonio Conte prepares for his first season in charge at Stamford Bridge.
The west London side are reported to have been keeping tabs on the 15-year-old attacking talent amid suggestions that he could be tempted to leave the Camp Nou this summer.
Now, The Sun is reporting that Chelsea could be set to land Gomez this summer and beat off competition from a number of Premier League clubs, including Liverpool.
The same report goes on to say Chelsea could be willing to pay as much as £7m to bring the youngster to Stamford Bridge this summer.
Conte is set to officially take charge at Stamford Bridge after his involvement in Euro 2016 with Italy.
The Blues moved quickly to appoint the Italian as Jose Mourinho’s permanent successor following the Portuguese coach’s sacking back in December.
