Chelsea are turning their attentions to Inter Milan defender Milan Skriniar.

The Blues are still searching for a top-class defender to replace the departed Antonio Rudiger and Andreas Christensen.

The London club were previously linked to Matthijs De Ligt and Jules Kounde, but neither move is progressing.

According to the Daily Mail, Chelsea have deemed De Ligt's £102million release clause too expensive and are now focusing on Skriniar.

Inter and Chelsea have good relations after the transfer of Romelu Lukaku, per Sky Sports.

Chelsea signed Lukaku a year ago, and are set to loan him back to Inter this summer.

Skriniar is also wanted by Paris Saint-Germain, who have offered roughly £52 million for his services.
