The West London outfit Chelsea are reportedly in a move for the signature of Cardiff City winger Josh Murphy as they hope to participate in the coming summer transfer window.
With Chelsea unsure of the future of Belgium international Eden Hazard, Brazilian star Willian and Pedro, they are in search of wingers that can fill the space to ensure the team continues to compete in the coming season.
The fact that the Blues team have secured qualification to the Champions League makes it important to land quality players that will help them compete at that level.
However, the West London outfit seems to have identified Josh Murphy after he impressed this season with Cardiff City.
A source close to Cardiff City has hinted that the Blues team are keen on the signature of Josh Murphy and will do all in their powers to land him as soon as the summer transfer window.
The only barer for the West London outfit to the deal is the transfer ban which has been handed by the world football governing body FIFA.
Meanwhile, the Blues team have already submitted their appeal and they hope it would be listened to for the ban to be delayed until after the coming summer transfer window.
