Hellas Verona are targeting Chelsea defender Xavier Mbuyamba.
The Sun says Mbuyamba, 20, signed for The Blues from Barcelona in 2020 but is yet to make his debut for the club.
And he could now leave to gain experience at senior level.
Hellas Verona manager Igor Tudor is keen on Mbuyamba and the Serie A outfit want to sign the youngster on a short-term loan, report Gazzetta dello Sport.
But it is not clear whether Chelsea would be willing to let Dutch defender leave.
Mbuyamba is highly rated at Stamford Bridge and has spent time training with the first-team this season.
