Southampton’s right-back, Tino Livramento could be set for a return to Chelsea.
The Blues have held talks with the Saints over a potential deal, but could loan him back.
Southampton value the 20-year-old at £38million and have turned down offers from Newcastle United in the last week.
Chelsea sold Livramento for £8m and included a hefty sell-on percentage.
Livramento has impressed at St Mary’s, having never played senior football at Stamford Bridge.
New Chelsea manager, Mauricio Pochettino, is now keen on bringing him back.
The approach comes as a surprise with Reece James and new arrival from Lyon, Malo Gusto, already on their books.
