English Premier League outfit Chelsea have now known they will have to pay the sum of £15 million for Italian Serie A outfits Empoli highly-rated midfielder, Hamed Junior Traore.
Regional Italian newspaper II Tirreno reports that The Italian Serie A side are aware of the interest for Hamad Junior Traore from the West London side as well as from other Serie A sides Juventus, AS Roma and Inter Milan.
Hamad Junior Traore is one of the best youngest prospects in the Italian league as he has been impressive and delivered more performance than expected.
Reports claim that Chelsea boss Maurizio Sarri will make use of his influence as a former manager of the Serie A club to make a bid for the youngster.
The Stamford Bridge side are set to lose Spanish midfielder Cesc Fabregas and former Leicester City midfielder Danny Drinkwater which is the reason why they are keen on the superb wonderkid as a replacement.
Recall that Sarri hinted that a replacement is expected for the former Barcelona star after dismissing claims that the newly signed Borussia Dortmund star Christian Pulisic is not the replacement for the Cesc Fabregas.
However, the Blues will no doubt meet with the asking price of the Italian side and hope they agree on personal terms with the player.
