Chelsea are looking to strengthen their midfield options ahead of the new season and have Brighton’s Moises Caicedo as one of their top targets. Pochettino is also set to see several midfield departures this summer with Mateo Kovacic likely to join Manchester City, while N’Golo Kante is finalising his move to Saudi Pro League side Al-Ittihad. Manchester United are also continuing with their bid to sign Mason Mount, while Ruben Loftus-Cheek is also expected to depart.

However, the report claims that Pochettino has personally taken steps to convince Veiga to move to Stamford Bridge as he has contacted the midfielder’s representatives to make Chelsea’s interest known.
