The 15-year-old, who is capable of operating in a number of different positions up from of the field, has impressed with his from at youth level for AS Monaco.

According to L’Equipe, the Blues are currently tracking the talented forward as they consider making an attempt to lure him to Stamford Bridge ahead of the next campaign.

The report suggests that Efekele is regarded as the best talent to come through Monaco’s youth setup since Kylian Mbappe, who has developed into one of the best forward in world football.

French forward has managed to break several records in Ligue 1 already and has claimed the world-cup trophy with Didier Deschamp’s side.

The Blues have already secured deals for Timor Werner and Hakim Ziyech during the summer transfer window, while Frank Lampard’s side are also believed to be interested in securing the services of Bayer Leverkusen’s Kai Havertz.

Chelsea offered two players by Juventus in a swap deal for £110,000 a-week midfielder

Chelsea have reportedly been offered the choice of signing one of the two players by Juventus as the Italian giants are desperate to lure Jorginho at Allianz Stadium ahead of the next season.

The Old Lady are supposedly stepping up their pursuit of the Brazilian-born midfielder ahead of the summer transfer window, with ex-Chelsea head-coach Maurizio Sarri believed to be keen on a reunion with the player in Turin.

According to Tuttosport, Serie A champions are willing to part ways with either Adrian Rabiot or Aaron Ramsey as they attempt to lure Jorginho back to the Italian top-tier.

The report claims that Chelsea are reluctant to sell Italy international midfielder less then £58m they originally paid for the 28-year-old, however, the West London club will likely lower their asking price should a part-exchange deal be agreed between the two parties.

Jorginho has played 37 games in all competitions for Chelsea this season, founding back of the net six times and provided two assists for Frank Lampard’s side.

Elsewhere, Chelsea are supposedly favourites to secure services of Bayer Leverkusen playmaker Kai Havertz.

German outfits are believed to demanding around €70-80m for their key man and the Blues should sell several players in order to lure him at Stamford Bridge.

Chelsea duo emerged as a shock transfer target for Inter Milan

Chelsea striker Olivier Giroud has reportedly remained as a transfer target for Antonio Conte.

Having recently moved up the pecking order under Frank Lampard, French forward has recently penned a one-year contract extension with Chelsea.

However, despite currently being regarded as Frank Lampard’s No.1 choice striker, it appears that the veteran will be offered a route out of the West Londoners.

Chelsa have signed Timo Werner from RB Leipzig earlier last summer and it seems unlikely for Frenchman to be in the starting XI next campaign.

According to the Daily Mail, Inter Milan are still keen on securing the services of the 33-year-old and another Chelsea star Emerson Palmieri during the next window.

With the Blues having plans to make more big-money additions before the next campaign, Inter are aware that club officials will want to make a number of sales.

As it stands, a deal for Palmieri appears more likely, with the Italy international now behind Marcos Alonso and Cesar Azpilicueta with regards to selection, while Ben Chilwell and Nicolas Tagliafico continue to be rumoured with a switch to Stamford Bridge.

Frank Lampard have strengthen his offensive end this summer after agreeing a deal for Timo Werner and Hakim Zyech and not he is looking forward to make addition for his backline.
