Chelsea FC considering Slovak playmaker

Hamsik is on Chelsea's radarChelsea FC are seriously considering a move for Napoli’s Marek Hamsik in light of the fact that Tottenham Hotspur will not allow Luka Modric to leave.

Tottenham’s Harry Redknapp had suggested that “someone” was trying to play with Modric’s mind so that the White Hart Lane side would then look to give up and allow the Croatian to move on however with only three days of the transfer window remaining, chairman Daniel Levy is standing strong on any movement.

Chelsea are in need of a playmaker and reports suggest they are willing to pay up to £40m in order to get the right player. Whilst Moutinho and Ganso have also been mentioned in the past, a deal for either of the two looks unlikely this summer however the West London club have now made enquiries into Hamsik who, on paper, would fit the bill perfectly.

Whilst Napoli’s stance is that they do not wish to sell, they are certainly to be tempted by offers around £35m plus, and a move for Hamsik this summer currently looks more likely than one last effort to land Luka Modric.
