Chelsea are leaving no stone unturned in their bid to bolster their squad next season and Antonio Conte’s attack could get even better next term, as he is being tipped to add Turkish playmaker Hakan Calhanoglu to his squad this summer.
According to a report by Ajansspor, as referenced by the Daily Star, Chelsea plan to trigger a €38m (£33.2m) release clause in Calhanoglu’s contract at Bayer Leverkusen.
Calhanoglu would add flair, vision and deadly set-pice delivery to Conte’s team.
The 23-year-old Turkey international is an expert at free-kicks, but he can also be highly effective from open player.
Calhanoglu has scored six goals and provided five assists in 15 Bundesliga matches this season.
