Chelsea will use defender Filipe Luis as a makeweight this summer in an attempt to sign Atletico Madrid midfielder Koke.

Jose Mourinho has been promised big money to spend in the transfer market this summer and is a long-term admirer of the 23-year-old, having made an enquiry into his signature last season.

Therefore, according to the Evening Standard, a Luis-plus-cash-deal is being explored by the London club, despite Koke's £48m release clause.

Chelsea's early Champions League exit has highlighted their need for reinforcements, and Koke fits the bill perfectly.
