According to the Daily Mail (h/t El Nacional), Chelsea has made a €39 million (£33 million) approach for Frenkie de Jong.
Barcelona is thought to be willing to sell the Dutchman for more than €40 million.
Following a spate of poor performances for Barcelona, De Jong has continued to make transfer headlines.
Critics think he isn’t even close to being worth the €86 million Barca paid for him in 2019.
The midfielder has appeared in 24 games this season, scoring three goals.
