Chelsea FC are holding talks with Inter Milan to sign Matias Vecino, according to Sky Sports News reporter Dharmesh Sheth.

The Blues have been linked with a move to sign the Uruguay international in the summer transfer window to bolster Maurizio Sarri’s midfield ahead of the new Premier League season.

Vecino earned rave reviews during the World Cup after the 26-year-old helped Uruguay to reach the quarter-finals before a 2-1 loss to eventual winners France.

The Premier League has already seen one Uruguayan midfielder arrive this summer following Lucas Torreira’s £26m switch to Arsenal from Serie A side Sampdoria.

San Siro outfit Inter Milan are reported to be demanding £6m more for Vecino as Chelsea FC scramble to improve their squad ahead of transfer deadline day next week.

Sky Sports News reporter Sheth confirms Chelsea FC are in talks with Inter to sign Uruguayan star.

“We are told Chelsea are in talks to sign Inter Milan midfielder Matias Vecino,” Sheth told Sky Sports Transfer Talk podcast.

“Inter want £32m. He is a Uruguay international and he featured in each of their games in the World Cup in Russia.”

Vecino has scored three goals and has made two assists in 25 starts and three substitute appearances in Serie A.

He racked up 413 minutes in the World Cup in Russia after he started all five of their games in the summer’s major tournament.

Chelsea FC have signed Italy international Jorginho and veteran England goalkeeper Rob Green in the summer transfer window so far.
