LONDON - Chelsea is now reportedly planning to make a 50 million pound summer swoop for Arsenal captain Cesc Fabregas.
Fabregas would be an even more astonishing Blues coup than the record 50 million pound signing of striker Fernando Torres from Liverpool.
According to the Sun, Stamford Bridge officials believe that the 23-year-old midfielder would be the ideal partner for Frank Lampard.
However, the club faces a huge task to convince the Gunners to part with their captain, who had last year asked to be allowed to join Barcelona.
Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger had slapped a 60 million pound price-tag to stave off the Spanish giants. (ANI)
