Chelsea are pre­par­ing to launch a bid for New­cas­tle cap­tain Ja­maal Las­celles, re­ports the Evening Stan­dard. Gary Cahill is 32 and David Luiz is 31, with Chelsea deter­mined to add youth to their squad. The Blues are keen to bol­ster their de­fen­sive op­tions, and the 24-year-old ticks all the boxes for An­to­nio Conte’s side. But Rafa Ben­itez will be des­per­ate to keep hold of Las­celles, who was a close con­tender to make Gareth South­gate’s World Cup squad.
