Luis Enrique will make signing Luis Suarez from Barcelona his first priority if he is appointed as Chelsea FC’s new manager, according to journalist Eduardo Inda.

There has been relentless speculation about Antonio Conte’s future at Stamford Bridge in recent days after Chelsea FC slumped to surprise back to back losses to Bournemouth and Watford.

It remains to be seen whether Conte will see out the season at Chelsea FC and whether or not he will still be in charge of the west London side at the start of the new campaign in August.

Now, journalist Inda has claimed that former Barcelona boss Enrique is in line to take over at Stamford Bridge and his first priority in the summer transfer window will be signing Suarez.

Speaking on Spanish show El Chiringuito TV, Inda said: “Luis Enrique will go to Chelsea and his objective is to sign Luis Suarez.”

Chelsea FC currently find themselves in fourth place in the Premier League table after their 4-1 loss to Watford on Monday night.

The west London side will be to get back to winning ways when they take on West Bromwich Albion in front of their home fans on Monday night.

Chelsea FC will take on FC Barcelona in the last 16 of the Champions League later this month.
