The 28 year old boasts a high profile at the peak of ten years with the French giants. His skills have kept a number or top bigwigs scrambling for his signature in the past including Real Madrid, Manchester United and Juventus. However, in 2018, he decided to stay at the club amid looming transfer rumor links.

Chelsea is optimistic they can get the Italy international through using Jorginho who plays with him on national duties. Jorginho can convince him to join the Blues'. Regrettably, Jorginho's failure to command the central midfield on high press has sought Chelsea to search for the services of Veratti this summer. The 29 year old made an error that led to goal when Chelsea welcomed Arsenal to Stamford Bridge and they lost 1-0.

Verrati is viewed as an ideal fit among highly rated midfielders including Kanté, Kovacic and Casemiro. Therefore, moving to the premier league could bring a new challenge to him after dominantly spending time with PSG in the last decade. Tuchel is hopeful Chelsea can sign the star in wake of redeveloping a new team that no one wants to play against.
