Chelsea boss stepping up chase to try and land highly-rated La Liga defender

Reports have claimed Chelsea are eyeing up a move for Atletico Madrid defender Jose Gimenez.

The 19-year-old has recently impressed in a handful of starts for the La Liga champions, attracting interest from Premier League giants Chelsea.

Jose Mourinho was hoping to win the race for the young centre-back by lodging a £17m bid in January.

However, Atletico have rejected their early bid and will demand a lot more. © 2017 Frontier Theme
