With the season drawing to a close, Chelsea are being linked with more and more transfers. Undoubtedly Jose Mourinho will not be happy watching the Champions League final on TV, and thus new signings are guaranteed. 

Douglas Costa to Chelsea (Telegraph

Chelsea have had tangible interest in the Brazilian midfielder before, having had a £19 million bid rejected in January, before signing Juan Cuadrado. 

Jose Mourinho is known to be an admirer of the player, who, much like Willian, has an impressive work ethic and an industrious playing style, which on would seemingly translate well to the Premier League.

This rumour has a lot of substance behind it, the club have a long running interest in the player, current squad members are friends with Costa, and most importantly of all, the player has been making positive noises regarding the transfer.

Thus all the ingredients are there, whether or not Costa is good enough for Chelsea going forwards remains to be seen, as unless Costa is going to play behind the striker, he may struggle to find a way into the starting lineup.

Miranda to Chelsea (talkSPORT

Reports have been coming out that the Brazilian centre half Miranda is on his way to Stamford Bridge once the transfer window opens.

With his contract set to expire at the end of next season, Atlético may be forced to cash in on one of their most crucial players.

Miranda is a fantastic defender, and around about the time Brazil were 7-0 down to Germany in that infamous semi final, many people would have been wondering why he wasn’t in the starting lineup, let alone the squad. 

At 30, Miranda should have the drive and desire to fill the latter stage of his career with as much silverware as possible, furthermore, as a former teammate, he could help alleviate Diego Costa’s homesickness.

However, once again it’s tough to see where he fits into the team. Whilst it could be argued he would be an improvement over Cahill individually, he would have nowhere near the partnership Cahill and Terry currently share.

Lastly, I would prefer that Zouma was given as much playing time as possible, signing Miranda would only hinder this. Also, is it really wise to sign a player who will only be able to give another two years at the top level?
