Near the end of last year, defending Premier League champions, Chelsea were cited as one of the top Premier League teams to have expressed strong interest in Ukrainian giants Shakhtar Donetsk playmaker Bernard.
The South American forward has been in fine form for the Ukrainian side throughout the 2017/18 campaign and his performances have been attracting strong interest from European heavyweights.
Bernard’s long tenure with Ukrainian giants is set to come to an end when the summer comes around, though. His deal set to expire after the season ends and he appears to already be opened talks with the European heavyweights.
The Blues will undoubtedly be keen to add to their squad ahead of next campaign and on a free transfer, it’d come as no surprise to see them pursue a deal for Brazilian forward.
The 25-year-old forward is yet to play for the English club. However, it seems he is pondering a move to England this summer.
