Cheslea, along with Premier League rivals Liverpool and Manchester United, have been named as potential suitors for the Spaniard in recent weeks, however, a move to link up with Mauricio Pochettino now looks the most likely. 

The Blues are currently serving a two-window transfer ban, however, this has not prevented them from being involved in speculation surrounding a possible deal for the midfielder.

Olmo recently played a key role in Spain’s Under 21 European Championship win, with the 21-year-old getting on the scoresheet against Germany in the final. 

A host of European outfits, including Atletico Madrid, have also been tracking the player, but it appears as if a move to Tottenham could well go through ahead of the new season.
