Chelsea are reportedly ready to make their first signing of the Todd Boehly era by pressing ahead with a €50million (£43m) offer for Matheus Nunes.

According to a report from Portuguese outlet A Bola, Chelsea are ready to ‘attack’ the market and make an offer for the Sporting Lisbon midfielder.

‘I would say that Matheus Nunes is one of the best players in the world today.’
