Chelsea jump into transfer battle for Hellas Verona defender Kumbulla

Chelsea have jumped into the transfer battle for Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla.

Corriere dello Sport says Chelsea are challenging for Kumbulla.

Frank Lampard's side have stepped up their efforts in recent days.

Kumbulla, 20, has also been linked with Premier League duo Arsenal and Everton and has been likened to Juventus legend Giorgio Chiellini.

Chelsea are ahead of several other clubs in their pursuit of the once-capped Albania international, and could secure his signature for around £18m.
