Fabrizio Romano has claimed Chelsea have put in some calls to people close to Mohammed Kudus about potentially signing him this summer.

He told GiveMeSport that there is currently nothing concrete in their interest, and no bid has gone in for his services.

It has emerged that Kudus is one of the players the club are considering bringing in to add a little more depth to their attacking options for next season.

The Ajax man has proven himself as an extremely versatile member of the attack for club and country, with his ability to play anywhere undoubtedly a big bonus for the Blues.

They are facing competition for his signature from the likes of Arsenal. However, it is believed that they are willing to offer more money in order to get the deal over the line.

Kudus calls from Chelsea

Romano has claimed that provisional calls have taken place in order to sound out the conditions they would need to offer to bring in Kudus.

He said: “Chelsea called some people close to the player, to be informed on the conditions of the deal. But there has been no bid and there is nothing concrete yet.”

Another player they are considering to play in attack is Crystal Palace winger Michael Olise. It has been widely claimed that he has a very achievable release clause.

Manchester City are also reportedly interested in a deal, after they sold Riyad Mahrez to Saudi Arabia earlier this summer.

However, the Blues believe that they have stolen a march already on any other sides looking to sign him, off the back of having a good standing relationship with his family.
