Chelsea Transfer Rumours: 10 Biggest Names Linked to Blues
Recent Champions League winners Chelsea have been linked to a number of big names for a summer move.
While the team's Champions League win may lessen the chances of Roman Abramovich doing a complete overhaul on the squad, the rumours will continue to come and some may even become reality.
Chelsea certainly has the money to get any of their required targets, and if any of these players truly are on the club's wanted list, they may very well end up at the club.
Here are the 10 biggest names linked to Chelsea.
The Daily Mail reported back in March that the Blues were leading the race to sign Edinson Cavani, who has really been in great form this season with 32 goals in 48 games.
Signing Cavani would certainly put the future of a certain Fernando Torres in doubt, especially if Cavani continues to bang in goals on a regular basis.
Eden Hazard is a transfer target for a lot of England's top clubs. Chelsea is one of the clubs to have been strongly linked with the player and the Telegraph reports that they currently lead the pack in negotiations for the player.
Demba Ba's solid season with Newcastle saw him being considered as one of the Premier League's hottest properties and there have been a number of clubs said to be interested in the player.
Goal.com recently reported that the Senegalese striker was unhappy and may be looking to leave the club in the summer.
Chelsea will be happy with that news as they were linked for a move to sign the player back in March.
According to Talksport.com, Joao Moutinho's recent admission that he would move to England has sparked the interest of Chelsea.
The 25-year-old has been interesting the Blues for the last year and recent reports suggest they remain keen after the player helped Porto to another league title victory in Portugal.
He was heavily linked with a move to Stamford Bridge last summer when he was seen as a possible alternative to Luka Modric. And now the Portuguese international, who plays in central midfield, admits he cannot rule out a move to England.
Reports in Italy suggest the Blueshave been chasing the 22-year-old striker for some time, with an initial approach made in January.
No agreement was reached during the winter transfer window and Fiorentina insist their stance regarding the Montenegrin has not changed.
They are aware that speculation will continue to link Jovetic with big-money moves, especially to the Premier League, but are adamant that the highly-rated youngster is not for sale.
"We want to build our future around Jovetic," Fiorentina administrator Sandro Mencucci told Gazzetta dello Sport.
There are a number of clubs in Italy, France and England that are interested in the Chilean, so the London club would find it tough to grab his signature.
