Chelsea will make an enquiry about the availability of Juventus star Claudio Marchisio, as Jose Mourinho is a massive admirer.

Mourinho is thought to have agreed a four-year deal at Stamford Bridge and will become the highest paid manager in British.

He has plans to spend his £100 million transfer kitty on some top players and has been linked with Marchisio, who has been outstanding for Juventus once again this year.

Portuguese paper A Bola understands Mourinho is willing to offer £17million for Marchisio.

It is not a lot of money compared to the to their big names that they have been linked too this summer and it will be very interesting to see if the blues make a move for the brilliantly gifted player, as he could add a little more creativeness to an already impressive midfield
