Chelsea are set to renew their interest in Raphinha after missing out on a deal to sign the Barcelona winger last summer.
Chelsea were interested in a deal to sign Raphinha from Leeds last summer, but the Brazilian turned down a move to Stamford Bridge in favour of signing for Barcelona.
He has had a mixed first season with the Catalans, in which he has scored six goals and provided four assists in 26 league appearances.
Barcelona require substantial sales this summer in order to make new signings and Raphinha has been linked with an exit amid interest from the Premier League.
Arsenal and Tottenham were both keen on the 26-year-old last summer, Sport are reporting that Chelsea are prepared to reignite their interest.
Any deal would need to exceed the £55m fee Barcelona paid to sign Raphinha, who was the most expensive of the club’s recruits during last summer’s transfer window.
Barcelona are also open to offers for Ferran Torres and Ansu Fati, though each are understood to be keen on remaining at the Camp Nou.
