Chelsea plan bid for Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla

Chelsea are being linked with Hellas Verona defender Marash Kumbulla.

L'Arena says Chelsea are prepared to pay £21m this summer in an attempt to sign highly-rated defender Kumbulla.

The 20-year-old is a rising star in Serie A and is a top target of former Blues boss Antonio Conte at Inter Milan.

Chelsea are therefore prepared to shell out a hefty fee in order to secure Kumbulla's signature, according to reports from Italy.

The Blues are keen to beat their ex-manager to the signing of the Hellas Verona prospect and bolster their options in central defence.
