Chelsea want to sign Athletico Paranaense’s Brazilian 21-year-old Midfielder Bruno Guimaraes if they escape a transfer ban.

Chelsea scouts have watched him in recent games and are contemplating an offer. A deciding factor will be how Thursday’s appeal against their transfer ban unfolds and then whether they have further joy by taking their case to the Court of Arbitration.

Chelsea had hoped to strengthen in a number of areas, while they are also continuing negotiations with Real Madrid over the proposed sale of Eden Hazard.
