Chelsea have reportedly identified Aston Villa midfielder Jack Grealish as a potential summer signing.
Since the turn of the year, Grealish has been heavily linked with a switch to Manchester United, who appear ready to launch a big-money approach for the playmaker.
However, according to Calciomercato, Chelsea are also contemplating whether to join the race for the 24-year-old.
Frank Lampard would also favour adding another Englishman to his squad having already shown faith in a number of academy graduates.
Grealish has contributed seven goals and six assists from 26 starts in the Premier League this season.
