The former European champions — who were usurped by Real Madrid — have turned to Burnley’s top scorer after the Leeds United forward reportedly snubbed the Blues as he pushes for a move to Spanish giants Barcelona.
Cornet scored nine times in the Premier League last term having made the switch from Ligue 1 outfit Lyon. Following the Clarets’ relegation from the Premier League, it later emerged that the 25-year-old had a £17.5m release clause in his contract.
However, a number of clubs are believed to be monitoring Cornet’s situation. Here are the latest odds from BetVictor, who significantly slashed their odds from 12/1 for Cornet to move to Stamford Bridge.
