Chelsea FC are keen on deals to sign Raul Albiol and Miralem Pjanic this summer, according to reports in the British media.

The Daily Mirror is reporting that the Blues are pondering bids to try and bring the Napoli and Juventus stars to the Premier League this summer as they look to revamp their squad ahead of next season.

Chelsea FC have been linked with a host of players this summer but the Blues have not yet made any signings this term.

There continues to be unrelenting uncertainty about the managerial situation at Stamford Bridge, with Antonio Conte widely expected to depart this summer.

The same story claims that Maurizio Sarri will target moves for both Albiol and Pjanic this summer should he be appointed as the club’s new manager.

Albiol is believed to have a £5m release clause in his contract with Napoli, and Chelsea FC are reported to still hold an interest in Pjanic.

The same article claims that Napoli boss Sarri is the man being lined up to replace Conte at Chelsea FC this summer as the Blues look to bounce back from their disappointing campaign last term.

Chelsea FC ended up in fifth place in the Premier League table to miss out on a place in the Champions League for next season, but they did win the FA Cup.
