Chelsea FC are one of a number of Premier League clubs interested in signing Maritimo midfielder Josip Vukovic, according to reports in the British media.

talkSPORT is reporting that the Blues are keeping tabs on the Croatian midfielder ahead of the summer transfer window.

Chelsea FC are technically banned from signing any new players this summer but they should be able to make moves in the off-season if they appeal the Fifa transfer embargo.

According to the same story, Chelsea FC have been taking a look at Vukovic, 26, with a view to a summer move to bring him to Stamford Bridge.

The same article says that the likes of Benfica and Rangers are also interested in the midfielder, along with fellow Premier League clubs Leicester City, Watford, and Wolverhampton Wanderers.

Vukovic has made 16 league appearances for Maritimo so far this season.

Meanwhile, Chelsea FC are looking to make it back to back wins in the Premier League when they travel to Fulham on Sunday afternoon.

The Blues were in impressive form on Wednesday night when they bounced back from the disappointment of their League Cup final defeat by Manchester City with a 2-0 win over Tottenham at Stamford Bridge.
