Luis Enrique wants Marco Asensio among first Chelsea signings

Luis Enrique has identified one of his first signings if he is to take charge of Chelsea.

The former Barcelona coach is favourite to succeed Antonio Conte at Chelsea.

And Don Balon says Enrique has made it clear to Roman Abramovich that Real Madrid midfielder Marco Asensio would be crucial to his plans at Chelsea.

The former Barcelona boss is said to be willing to sign a contract at the Blues for the remainder of this season and the next two campaigns if his demand is met.

Enrique is aware there is a high probability Eden Hazard will leave the club in the summer.

And he has earmarked Asensio as the man to fill the gap the Belgian would cause.
