Chelsea are chasing Hamburg attacking midfielder Hakan Calhanoglu – the man dubbed the next Mesut Ozil.

Jose Mourinho will look to revamp his squad this summer as he looks to strengthen his side.

And Calhanoglu is a player interesting the Stamford Bridge club.

The Turkey international has been watched extensively by Blues scouts this season. He has been a rare bright spark in a largely disappointing season for Hamburg.

He has been coveted by a number of European clubs, including Liverpool and Arsenal.

Preliminary discussions with regards to the interest have already taken place, with Chelsea understood to value Calhanoglu at around £7.5million.

However, Hamburg want in the region of £12million for the talented attacker.

Calhanoglu will look to leave Hamburg in the summer and has informed his advisors to find him a new club, with UK-based agent Muzzi Ozcan working on a deal to bring the 20-year-old to England this summer.

Calhanoglu’s impressive displays have drawn comparisons with Arsenal midfielder Ozil, who is also of Turkish descent.
