Chelsea have shown interest in signing £50 million-rated Nottingham Forest defender Murillo under manager Enzo Maresca.

Following Thiago Silva’s departure, the Premier League club from west London is actively seeking a new central defender. They have already made an initial move for Boca Juniors’ highly regarded defender Aaron Anselmino.

Chelsea aims to recruit a defender who can immediately compete for a starting spot, and Murillo fits their criteria after an impressive debut season at Nottingham Forest.
