Chelsea owner Roman Abramovich has made Atletico Madrid forward Antoine Griezmann his priority transfer target this January.
Griezmann, 23, has set Europe alight this season, with several European clubs being interested in the winger following a run of impressive performances.
The Daily Mail claim that Chelsea are keen admirers of the France international, and that Abramovich is desperate to see the 23-year-old playing at Stamford Bridge in the not so distant future.
Atletico have slapped a £47million release clause on the Frenchman, but the Blues are willing to meet the price stated as they look to bolster their attacking force in the January transfer window.
Chelsea want to play Griezmann up front alongside Diego Costa but it is claimed that the former Real Sociedad star could be a replacement for the Spanish international, who is believed to want a return to Atletico.
