Chelsea Eye Watford Midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure

Chelsea have Watford midfielder Abdoulaye Doucoure in their sights for a shock Deadline Day switch, according to reports.

The 26-year-old midfielder was left out of the club’s 2-1 defeat at Spurs on Wednesday night with Hornets boss Javi Garcia claiming earlier this week that he’d had a knee problem.

But Mirror Sport understands Chelsea are big fans of the Frenchman with Maurizio Sarri still yet to get his midfielder to replace Cesc Fabregas.

Watford have been battling to hold on to Doucoure after he admitted earlier this month that he was dreaming of a move to PSG.

The French champions have instead moved for Everton’s  Idrissa Gueye but Doucoure could still move after making his desire to play for a bigger club clear.
