Chelsea have been linked with Atletico Madrid star Koke for several months for a fee in the region of £40m, but Fichajes claim now that the Blues could move for the Spaniard for closer to £22m.
Koke is one of Atleti’s most important players, but the Blues see him as an alternative to midfield star Cesc Fabregas. The £22m fee would be a starting bid, though Atletico are thought to want more for the player.
Chelsea had been the favourites to land the highly-rated Spanish international having completed deals with Atletico last summer for Diego Costa and Filipe Luis.
Manchester United and Manchester City are also believed to be interested in the midfielder but it remains unknown who has made the first move.
