Chelsea are pushing ahead with a proposed £22million deal for Aleksandr Golovin and want Christian Pulisic from Borussia Dortmund plus Daniele Rugani of Juventus.

Rugani is a promising young centre back at Juventus but has struggled for consistent game time while American winger Pulisic is highly regarded in Germany.
