Portuguese media outlet O Jojo has claimed that the Blues have already sent scouts to watch his displays at least five times as they are now being linked with a move for his services.

However, all the interested parties will have to consider his £40million release-clause that was recently added into his contract when he signed a new deal which would keep him at the club until 2021.

Guesdes has featured 13 times in all competitions for his side this term, so far scoring four goals while also being able to provide a further four assists.
