Chelsea are keen to close a deal for highly-rated Cagliari midfielder Nicolo Barella, according to L’Unione Sarda.

The Blues are willing to pay £40m for the 21-year-old and there is a hope that Gianfranco Zola's personal relationship will help bring the player to Stamford Bridge.

Atletico Madrid are also thought to be interested.

Watched him in the friendly vs the USA, attacking an American who had never played LB. Bang average if you ask me. The guy who really impressed was Chiesa. Ran that LB all over the lot, good pace, very dangerous in the attack. I could see him on a wing at Anfield.
He's a centre mid, if he was playing on the right wing that probably explains why he was bang average.

He was playing on the right side of midfield, giving Chiesa support. Thought Chiesa looked more of a player that would fit in a Klopp side, but what the F do I know?
