English Premier League champions Chelsea are looking to bolster their squad and looking to bring French midfield general Paul Pogba to Stamford Bridge this summer. The blues are reportedly weighing up a huge bid for the midfielder which includes Brazilian attacking midfielder Oscar Dos Santos as part of the deal plus a healthy amount of cash as reports say.

Juvetus manager Massimiliano Allegri is known to be a big fan of the 23-year-old Brazilian while Chelsea are willing to let him go this summer.

Oscar appeared in 28 games for the Blues in Premier League last season and netted 6 times and assisted 8 times. He also scored 1 goal for them in League Cup. But he saw his game time drastically reduced at the second half of the season and currently out of favour and would welcome a move to the Turin club.

Paul Pogba has won the Serie A with Juventus in each of his 3 seasons at the club. Pogba is highly rated due to his overall ability to defend and attack equally well. He has a great physique and very strong on and off the ball. He is compared to French legend and World Cup Winner Zinedine Zidane for his technique and flair. He also has a great eye for goals. He scored 10 times and assisted 6 times in all competitions for Juventus last season. His current transfer market value is around 70 million £.

Paul Pogba is also linked with moves to other European giants like Real Madrid, Barcelona, Manchester City and Paris St Germain. The competition for his signature is very much and Chelsea are looking to use Oscar as a bait to land the former European Golden Boy. Chelsea are reportedly lining up a 30 million £ cash plus Oscar bid for Pogba. It will be interesting to see how other top clubs respond to Chelsea’s huge bid for the highly rated midfielder.
