Federico Chiesa, meanwhile, shone for his country Italy on their way to clinching the Euro 2020 trophy against England at Wembley last summer.

Both players continue to be linked with moves to Stamford Bridge, although one player could be leaving the club to move in the opposite direction and sign for a big Italian side come January.
