Saint-Germain have reportedly launched a new bid for Lyon’s U21 international Bradley Barcola, who has also been linked to .

Chelsea  after missing out on  star Michael Olise.

Blues head coach Mauricio Pochettino wants to bring in at least one more attacking player before the summer transfer window closes and Barcola is one of the names being considered.

Barcola can operate as a forward or right winger and has spent his entire senior career at Lyon, where he registered seven goals and 10 assists last season.

Chelsea are not the only side looking at Barcola, though, with French champions PSG looking to convince him to snub the Premier League.

According to in France, PSG have now made a fresh bid to Lyon and have offered more than €40m.

However, despite PSG agreeing personal terms with Barcola, it is thought their new offer does not include a player swap, .

Chelsea remain keen on Barcola and held discussions with Lyon last week but hope of a move took a recent hit when the Blues allowed Andrey Santos to join Nottingham Forest on loan, who the French club were keen to bring in.

The west Londoners are not giving up on a transfer just yet, though, during a Ligue 1 match on Friday.

Chelsea are also exploring other attacking options including Arsenal’s Emile Smith Rowe and Manchester City’s Cole Palmer.
