Reports are out claiming that Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho is set to go after Blaise Matuidi this winter.
According to Tuttomercatoweb, the Blues boss is ready to offload John Obi Mikel and bring in Paris Saint-Germain midfielder Matuidi as his replacement.
Chelsea were reportedly keen on the 28-year-old France international during the summer transfer window but never made a move for his services.
However, Mourinho could make a play for £30million-rated Matuidi this January even if PSG look unlikely to sell the former Saint-Etienne star.
Blaise Matuidi is also wanted by Arsenal.
