Graham Potter wants Chelsea to sign Inter Milan midfielder Nicolo Barella.
With Jorginho and N’Golo Kante out of contract next summer, Potter could be looking to bolster Chelsea’s midfield over the next two transfer windows.
Both players are now in their thirties, so they will need to be replaced long-term, even if a new contract is agreed.
Now, according to Calciomercatoweb (via 90min), Potter wants to bring Inter Milan midfielder Barella to the club.
