Chelsea’s players have urged the club’s hierarchy to sign Everton forward, Richarlison.
Arsenal are also interested in signing the Brazil international, but the players want the Blues to move ahead of the Gunners.
Thomas Tuchel’s side have not signed any player this summer and have let the likes of Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen depart.
Top striker, Romelu Lukaku is also on the verge of returning to Inter on loan.
Richarlison, meanwhile, is keen on leaving Goodison Park this summer and has attracted interest from several clubs in the Premier League.
Everton are demanding £50 million for the player, while both Tottenham and Arsenal have made approaches in recent weeks.
The Sun reports that senior members of Chelsea’s squad want the Everton star at Stamford Bridge as Lukaku’s replacement.
The report claims that Chelsea’s players view Richarlison’s ‘aggression and tenacity’ as traits of a player they would like to see added to their squad.
The Brazilian scored 10 goals in the Premier League last season.
