The 26, is a central midfielder that already has so much experience for someone his age. He’s played 338 senior games for Atletico since coming through their academy.
Chelsea have been in contact with Saul's agents over a potential move this summer.
The £207,000-a-week Spaniard has had a drop off in form during the past year. However, he marked the opening game of Atletico’s 2021/22 season with an assist last weekend in a win against Celta Vigo.
The Blues already have a wealth of talent in the position, and duo N’Golo Kante and Jorginho were even named in the three-man shortlist for the UEFA Player of the Year this week.
It is believed that €50 million would be enough to secure his services if Chelsea are willing to pay that much for the midfielder.
Chelsea supporters on social media are convinced Atletico’s long-serving player could be a real asset at Stamford Bridge.
It is understood that Thomas Tuchel’s side have set their sights on Saul. Romano explains he’s a potential option, but right now there is nothing advanced and Spanish champions Atletico are yet to decide on his future.
Niguez and Kounde, meanwhile, will next be in action on Sunday and Monday in Atletico and Sevilla's respective clashes with Elche and Getafe.
Saul has become a possibility for Chelsea, though the club will bide their time and are also keeping tabs on young Monaco midfielder Aurelien Tchouameni.
