Chelsea are reportedly considering whether to launch a summer approach for Nice right-back Youcef Atal.
Nice right-back Youcef Atal has reportedly emerged as a potential transfer target for Chelsea.
The Blues are currently facing the prospect of a two-window transfer ban, but the Premier League side continue to be linked with possible summer additions.
According to The Telegraph, Atal has been identified as a player who Chelsea wish to pursue ahead of the start of next season.
The 22-year-old – who can also play in midfield – has contributed six goals from 25 appearances in Ligue 1 during the current campaign.
However, the report suggests that any interested club will have to be prepared to pay in the region of £35m in order to tempt Nice into a sale.
The Algeria international still has over four years remaining on his contract.
