Chelsea are chasing PSG midfielder Adrien Rabiot.

The Daily Express says the Blues have stepped up their interest in Arsenal target and Paris St-Germain star Rabiot as Jose Mourinho looks to bring more young players to Stamford Bridge.

Mourinho is a big fan of the 19-year-old, and believes that Rabiot can make a serious impact in the senior squad thanks to his versatility in midfield and defence.

Despite losing Frank Lampard on a free transfer at the end of the season, Mourinho has already moved to sign up former Arsenal star Cesc Fabregas, but the Special One is understood to be searching for more options in the middle of the park before the start of the new campaign, and is determined to beat the Gunners to Rabiot's signature.
