The Express understands that Chelsea are considering a move for Paris Saint Germain forward Angel Di Maria.
The Ligue One champions have already lost twice so far this season and currently sit four points behind surprise leaders Nice, and Di Maria could be set to move on when the transfer window reopens or at the end of the season.
Should he favour a return to the Premier League, the Blues are ready to make a move as they look to strengthen with a title win already looking unlikely this season.
The twenty-eight year old spent just one year in England with Manchester United, and failed to recreate his best form scoring just four goals in thirty-two appearances in all competitions.
He netted ten times on route to PSG winning the French championship last season while he also helped them win both the French Cup and French League Cup.
