Chelsea are maintaining contact with Real Madrid superkid Marco Asensio.
Don Balon says Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich is spearheading the move because he is determined to bring him to Stamford Bridge.
Abramovich has already begun work on a potential deal by sending representatives to discuss a switch with the 21-year-old.
Asensio is under contract at the Bernabeu until the summer of 2023 after putting pen to paper on an extension last year.
Despite emerging as one of Real Madrid’s hottest prospects, Asensio’s progress has stalled in recent months.
Alvaro Morata has also talked up Asensio’s potential to Chelsea chiefs.
