Chelsea are looking to bring in Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Adrien Rabiot during the January transfer window, according to L’Equipe.
The 23-year-old is in the last six months of his contract at PSG and the Ligue One side have confirmed the player will leave at the end of the season.
However, they could be persuaded to sell Rabiot this month for the right fee, especially as the midfielder has not played since early December.
Barcelona had been leading the race to sign him on a free transfer next summer, ahead of the likes of Liverpool, Arsenal and Tottenham. Now though, the Catalan club may be forced into making a January bid if the Blues decide to make their move.

Maurizio Sarri’s side have reportedly made enquiries in recent days about how much the player will cost.
Any deal would also have to be sanctioned by the player’s mother and agent Veronique Rabiot who is seeking a €10m signing on fee.
