Chelsea leads the race to sign Juventus midfielder, Paul Pogba. The frenchman is regarded as one of the finest players around, and is being spoken about as a future Ballon D'Or winner.

The Blues already have a luxury of talent in central midfield with Cesc Fàbregas, Nemanja Matić and Oscar playing in similar positions, but his arrival will only boost the club's already big reputation, and increase competition for places.

Rumours suggest the Italian giants are willing to accept bids in excess, of £44 million, with clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester City and Manchester United also interested in his services. He is expected to make a transfer this summer, as he is on course to help his team to another Scudetto.

Pogba is still only 21-years-old and he has achieved so much in the game already. He has won two Serie A titles with Juvé, as well as the under-20 World Cup with France. Individually he was named as the 'Golden Boy' in 2013 and he won the FIFA World Cup Best Young Player in Brazil 2014.

His preferred destination is to play in England, as the three aforementioned clubs have been put on red alert. Pogba has 20 senior caps for the France national team, with five goals to his name and is rapidly becoming one of their most important players. He is renowned for his phenomenal goals and excellent footwork, and would get in most of teams, currently. The Italian giants took him on a free transfer from Manchester United in 2012, and ever since his career has grown immensely.

It is regarded as one of Sir Alex Ferguson's biggest mistakes, to let the troubled youngster leave, as he would fit ideally in their squad now and they wouldn't have to pay such a hefty fee.

His price tag is rising by the game as he has notched eight goals in his 25 games this season, and he has built fantastic midfield partnerships with Andrea Pirlo, Claudio Marchisio and Arturo Vidal in particular.

Whether it is the English trio or another of Europe's elite clubs that do snap him up, they certainly have a gem on their hands with an excellent future in the game. #Football
