English media continue to suggest Chelsea are preparing a £15m offer for Inter midfielder Fredy Guarin.
As we already reported on Monday, the Colombian international said “Mourinho is simply number one.”
To fuel the rumours of a Stamford Bridge bid, Michael Essien’s agent has confirmed the Ghanaian “could leave Chelsea this winter.
“Several major European clubs playing in the Champions League were informed and the situation should settle down within the next 10 days,” Fabian Piveteau told RMC in France.
Guarin has been used in several different roles by current Inter Coach Walter Mazzarri, but it’s widely believed he is on the transfer market.
His sale would help raise funds for a January reinforcement, potentially even Tottenham forward Erik Lamela.
