Chelsea have been heavily linked with signing Atletico Madrid winger Yanic Carassco according to the Metro  reports.

The report claims Chelsea have an interest in signing Atletico Madrid forward who will cost them as much as his teammate Antione Griezmann who is believed to be on his way to Stamford Bridger Stadium.

The forward only penned a new Atletico deal in October though and is under contract has €99m (£86m) buyout clause and Roman Abramovic should break the bank to lure him in Premier League.

Carrasco, who joined Atletico from Monaco in July 2015 for £17m, has scored 12 times in 29 appearances for club and country so far this season.

Should he make the move to Chelsea this summer, he would link up with several of his international team-mates at Stamford Bridge.

The Blues currently have Belgian trio Eden Hazard, Thibaut Courtois and Michy Batshuayi in their ranks.
