Chelsea are plotting a £20million summer swoop for Juventus’ Arturo Vidal.

Jose Mourinho’s scouts have been keenly watching the Chile star, who is an all-round box-to-box player and is seen as a potential replacement for the Blues' long-serving Frank Lampard.

Vidal, 26, is believed to fancy a move away from the Serie A leaders this summer. And with Juve expressing an interest in Chelsea’s Brazilian midfielder Ramires, a swap deal could even be struck.

Ramires may be allowed to leave Stamford Bridge at the end of the season.
