Chelsea FC are looking to sign up to six players in the summer transfer window, according to a report in England.

The Evening Standard, as quoted by the Daily Star, is reporting that Chelsea FC director Marina Granovskaia is set to take charge of transfer negotiations given the continued uncertainty at Stamford Bridge.

The same article states that the Blues are looking to improve their defence with Juventus centre-half Daniele Rugani and Newcastle United captain Jamaal Lascelles.

According to the same story, the west London side are interested in a deal to sign Nice’s versatile midfielder Jean Michael Seri and Bayer Leverkusen’s Jamaican forward Leon Bailey.

The Evening Standard suggests that club record signing Alvaro Morata could be sold this summer to make room for Juventus striker Gonzalo Higuain.

Chelsea FC finished in fifth place in the Premier League table last term to miss out on a Champions League spot for the second successive season.

The Blues were 1-0 winners against Manchester United in the FA Cup final at Wembley last term after Eden Hazard scored from the penalty spot.

The west London side haven’t won the Champions League title since 2012 when Chelsea FC beat Bayern Munich on penalties in the Allianz Arena.
