Bernard has reportedly decided to try and push through a move to AC Milan.
Chelsea are in the market for new recruits with just over a week to go until the transfer window slams shut until January.
Bernard is one of the players in their sights as they seek to add to the captures of Jorginho and Rob Green.
Signing the Brazil international is an enticing prospect given he’s available on a free transfer after leaving Shakhtar Donetsk.
However, the latest reports in Italy indicate Bernard will be heading to Serie A rather than the Premier League if he gets his way.
According to today’s edition of La Gazzetta dello Sport, Chelsea are still trying to lure Bernard to England.
But the 25-year-old is said to be pushing to link up with Milan instead ahead of the oncoming 2018/19 campaign.
