Chelsea in talks with Villarreal over Jackson

Chelsea are in talks with Villarreal over the signing of forward Nicolas Jackson.

It is thought Chelsea are prepared to meet the €35m (£29.8m) release clause with discussions centred on the structure of payments and performance-based incentives. 

Informal talks with Jackson's representatives have been positive and personal terms are not expected to be a problem if and when a deal can be struck.

Jackson is one of a number of forwards Chelsea are looking at.

The 21-year-old was close to joining Bournemouth in January, but a hamstring injury scuppered the move.
