Leandro Paredes appears to have hinted at a January move to Chelsea by retweeting a ‘Welcome to Chelsea’ video on social media website Twitter.
Paredes, the midfielder, has been linked with a switch to Stamford Bridge following the departure of Cesc Fabregas to Monaco.
A deal for Paredes is believed to be the more likely as Cagliari are unwilling to cash in on their prized asset midway through a season, and the player himself appears to have hinted he will join the Blues.
Paredes, who currently represents Zenit Saint Petersburg, retweeted a ‘Welcome to Chelsea’ video which was shared when someone responded to the question: ‘Nicolo Barella or Leandro Paredes?’
Should Paredes sign for Chelsea, he could be joined at Stamford Bridge by Argentina team-mate Gonzalo Higuain.
Higuain has made it clear he wants to leave Milan amid interest in the forward from Chelsea, with the Blues exploring the possibility of signing the 31-year-old from Juventus, his parent club.
