Thomas Tuchel's performance in Chelsea has been so impressive due to his tremendous form in coaching the team. He once said tgat he want to build a team that no one would ever want to play against.
If the Blues are willing to stump up that amount, they would be free to speak to the player himself as it would activate the release clause in his contract, the report adds.
To date, Gavi has made 14 appearances across all competitions for the Blaugrana, registering a solitary assist. By far one of Barcelona’s most impressive players in the ongoing campaign, the midfielder even broke into the Spanish national team and shone brightly during their UEFA Nations League fixtures last month.
But Barcelona are also reported to be working hard on tying the player down to a new deal which would bump his release clause up to a whopping €1bn (£840m).
As a product of the Barcelona youth academy, the 17-year-old Gavi joined La Masia from Real Betis in 2015. He burst onto the scenes during the pre-season this past summer and soon integrated himself into the first team at Camp Nou. Having made his debut in August, the teenager has become a regular fixture in the middle of the park for the Catalans.
Gavi’s rise to prominence in a very short time has not gone unnoticed as Chelsea have taken a keen interest in the 17-year-old midfielder. The Blues have a packed midfield contingent as things stand, with N’Golo Kante, Jorginho, Mateo Kovacic, Ruben Loftus-Cheek all available at Thomas Tuchel’s disposal, along with on-loan midfielder Saul Niguez.
Chelsea's forgotten man Hakim Ziyech is edging closer to a January move to Barcelona to play under new boss Xavi Hernandez, according to reports.
The former Ajax man has failed to settle at Stamford Bridge since his summer switch and is now said to be agitating for more game time.
Spanish publication SPORT carry reports that strugglers Barca have already lined up the Moroccan and see him as an ideal January transfer window addition, but do not have the funds necessary to pull off a permanent deal
Chelsea who are the previous champions league winners is now holding the first position in the premier league table.
