Chelsea are reportedly keen on a move for Atletico Madrid midfielder Saul Niguez this summer.
The 26-year-old has previously been linked with a move to Liverpool, but Spanish outlet AS state that Paris Saint-Germain and the Blues are now considering a move for the La Liga-winning midfielder.
Saul is apparently eager for a new challenge after lifting the Spanish title this year, having spent his entire career so far with Atletico and only making 22 starts in the league in the last campaign.
Saul has a release clause of €150million [£128million], but the club could be willing to let him leave for less than that amount.
The Spanish star will certainly have plenty of options open to him if he does decide to leave the capital, and he has certainly got the eye of players elsewhere.
Kane says that the midfielder’s ability while running with the ball is one of the things he wishes he had in his arsenal.
“Pogba’s skills, Reus’ amazing free-kicks, Saul [Niguez’s] perfect dribbling, [Krzysztof ]Piatek’s intuition and [Gianluigi] Donnarumma’s big arm span,” the England captain said previously.

Whether Chelsea have the desire to get a deal done for Saul remains to be seen, with a midfield already brimming with talent.
As well as N’Golo Kante, Jorginho and Mateo Kovacic to fit into the holding roles, Mason Mount, Kai Havertz and Hakim Ziyech can play centrally.
And that is before you consider the likes of Billy Gilmour trying to break into the first team.
