Now the summer transfer window has officially opens we’re expecting some big deals to happen in the coming weeks and today’s Express starts the busy speculation season in fine form by suggesting that new Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho wants to sign AC Milan striker Stephan El Shaarawy.
Charles Perrin is the scribe behind the story and he makes it clear that Mourinho is eager to bring the impressive 20-year-old to Stamford Bridge during the summer as the former Real Madrid manager seeks to make his mark on the Blues team he inherited from interim boss Rafael Benitez.
The young Italian had a successful breakthrough season at the San Siro netting 16 times last term as he formed a positive understanding with January capture and international team-mate Mario Balotelli.
This form has brought him to the attention of the watching scouts and clubs ready to move for El Shaarawy include Real Madrid, Manchester City and Monaco if you believe the rumours.
Sources in his native country suggest that Milan are looking for around £30 million but that won’t put off Chelsea and we could yet see the very talented youngster strutting his stuff in the Premier League next season.
