Chelsea are chasing Atletico Madrid star Yanick Carrasco according to Don Balon.

 The Blues are keen to add to their squad, in what has been a disappointing summer for manager Antonio Conte, and want to bring the unsettled player to England.

Carrasco for his part is no longer happy under Diego Simeone and would welcome the chance to make the move and start again in the Premier League – especially for Chelsea and Conte.

However, the sticking point would obviously be that Carrasco is a big player for Atleti, and Simeone is a fan – and that, coupled with the ban on registering players the club currently have could make it very hard for Chelsea to land their man.

A deal may be done in January when Atleti can bring in players – with Diego Costa of course on the top of their transfer list, and the player not even returning to Chelsea for pre-season, instead partying with his brother in Brazil.
