Chelsea dealt major blow in pursuit of £51.6m ace as boss issues update

 It could well be a very busy summer at Chelsea if their looming transfer ban gets pushed back by one window  The Blues received the ban last week for breaching rules in relation to youth players but the club have said they will appeal the decision  With Gary Cahill, David Luiz and Olivier Giroud just some of the players who will be out of contract at the end of the season, as well as Eden Hazard, Willian and Pedro's deals expiring 12 months later, Chelsea really do need to add to their squad  Given the likely exit of two experienced defenders ahead of next season, a new centre-back will no doubt be a priority for Maurizio Sarri or whoever else is in charge come the summer    Amid talk of a big-money move for Napoli's Kalidou Koulibaly, AC Milan's Alessio Romagnoli has also been linked with a transfer to west London  The 24-year-old is a player that Sarri knows very well from his time in Italy but it seems coming to an agreement with the Rossoneri will prove very difficult   According to Milan News (via Sport Witness ), the Italian giants have no plan to part ways with their captain even though Chelsea are willing to pay €60million (£51 6m) for his services  However, the report claims that Milan 'doesn't listen and will not listen' to any offers for the Italian international  AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso has now given his take on the player's future and it appears that the Blues will have to look elsewhere for a new centre-back   "Romagnoli renewed his contract a few months ago," he said at his pre-match press conference (via Football Italia ) "He’s our captain and he must keep growing

 "The rumours aren’t an issue He’s happy and proud to be here and be our captain He’ll stay here" Keep up to date with the latest news, features and exclusives from  football london  via the free footballlondon app  for  iPhone  and  Android    Available to download from the  App Store  and  Google Play
