Chelsea will be looking to make a final push for Inter Milan Achraf Hakimi with them also still looking to add a player, MySportDab reports.
With the Italian side holding out for €65 million, the Blues will be making an increase to their previous offer which will also include a player.
Marcos Alonso and a reported €55 million fee will be made for Achraf Hakimi as Chelsea are looking to beat Paris Saint Germain to sign the wing back.
Thomas Tuchel is eager to work with the player and he is pushing the board to make sure they are able to complete a move for him.
Paris Saint Germain have recently made another step forward as they are also ready to pay the full amount being asked by the Italian side.
Jones claims that Chelsea are focused on signing Hakimi, and he suggested Alonso could be crucial if the deal will be completed ahead of PSG move.
Speaking on The Football Terrace, Jones said;
“Hakimi is the one right now that most of the focus is on. I know there have been reports that PSG are in the lead to sign him.
“Hakimi obviously does want to leave Inter, the thing that is really behind Chelsea here is that Marcos Alonso is open to leaving Chelsea and Inter Milan really do want to sign him.
So that’s a big thing that Chelsea have got in their locker here.”
“If Chelsea have got a player that Inter think can strengthen their team, it helps make this transaction easier and helps deal with the loss of Hakimi.
Then that’s a massive plus for Chelsea. The player has always liked the idea of playing for Chelsea.”
