Chelsea are reportedly weighing up a potential move for Barcelona attacker Lionel Messi.
The Argentine is believed to be considering his future at Camp Nou, with various reports suggesting that the forward could seek pastures new during this summer's transfer window.
However, according to Sport, Chelsea are also exploring the possibility of signing the South American.
Frank Lampard's side would allegedly be interested if Messi became available, though, and are keeping a close eye on developments as the speculation continues to gather pace.
Barca are said to be unprepared to sell their star player this summer for less than his £631m release clause.
