Chelsea director Granovskaia in talks for several big money transfer targets

Chelsea director Marina Granovskaia is currently in negotiations for several big money transfer targets, it has been revealed.

The London Evening Standard says the Blues have yet to make any purchases in the window, though a £35million offer for Juventus defender Daniele Rugani has been made.

Others on their wish-list include Jamaal Lascelles (Newcastle United), Leon Bailey (Bayer Leverkusen), Anthony Martial (Manchester United) and Jean Michael Seri (Nice). If Sarri is eventually appointed as expected, he will also ask Chelsea to pursue a number of his former players at Napoli.

Chelsea could also be in the market for another striker amid reports that Alvaro Morata's agent is meeting with club officials next week to confirm the Spain international wants to leave.

The club expect Morata to turn up for training as normal on July 9 with the rest of squad that are not in Russia at the World Cup.
