CHELSEA will reportedly consider a bid for RB Leipzig forward Dani Olmo if Mykhailo Mudryk opts to sign for Arsenal.
However, they could still miss out on the Ukrainian and be forced to look elsewhere for alternatives.
It comes amid several injury concerns for Chelsea with the likes of Raheem Sterling, Christian Pulisic and Mason Mount all suffering fitness issues.
Making his international debut while still at Dinamo Zagreb three years ago, Olmo has already racked up 29 caps for his country and bagged five goals.
His current contract with Leipzig runs until 2024.
