Emerging report claims that the West London outfit Chelsea have made up their mind to move in for the signature of Brazilian international French Ligue 1 outfit Thiago Mendes as soon as the summer transfer window is reopened.
The West London outfit will not be able to register any new player as soon as the summer transfer window is concerned as they have been handed a ban for the next two windows.
This remains a big blow to the West London outfit as they will not expect any new signing unless the appeal on the ban is won.
However, Thiago Mendes has been tipped to be a good fit for the West London outfit due to his quality and style of play. Suggestions are that he would be able to play at a top level.
Chelsea are hoping that they can land a midfielder as they are unsure of the future of Matteo Kovacic at the club with his loan spell expected to expire at the end of the season.
He has, therefore, been in fine form this season and has helped Lille with a second position spot in the league table.
Should Chelsea have their ban upturned, there is no doubt that Thiago Mendes would be the first to be considered as the first signing.
